Red-winged Blackbird_Female_J1F6907

I don't often see Red-winged Blackbirds away from water, so when this female, exploring the rip rap forming a dike between between wetland bays, came close I was happy to have some different habitat images.

The little thing on her head appears to be either a mosquito or a shed exoskeleton of some insect she may have brushed up against.
