Redwings

The first time I saw redwings, I thought to myself - Wow That’s a lot of song thrushes! I even blogged about it as song thrushes. However, I soon figured out that they were redwings. Here`s a post to know them better.

Although they mostly occur in flocks mixed with other birds such as song thrushes and blackbirds, I`ve come across one or two loners too.

The identifying features one should look out for is the red under the wings and the white streak above the eyes.

A distinct feature to listen out for is the clattering sounds they make:
