I could not have come up with a better choice of photos to go with this weeks challenge.
I’ve had my own experience with a red wing black bird in Tunica,MS several years ago while we were staying in the RV Park at the Hollywood Casino. A red wing black bird would see him/herself in my bedroom window and peck at the window for a half an hour. Two days of getting woke up at 6:00 AM and we probably didn’t get in until 2:AM. I hadn’t figured out what the noise was until about the third day. I thought it was workers outside working on something. Then on the third day I went to the window and this bird was pecking at my window. I now know they are not the friendliest bird in the sky, but to attack a hawk. WOW!
