Top 200 Photos: #134

Once again to Chicago for this Top 200 Photo.

photo #134 is:
Communicating with other birds

I now know this is a red-winged blackbird. At the time I just thought it was an awesome-looking bird that let me get really close to it for a photo. The most unsettling aspect of this photo is that the beak doesn’t hinge where it seems that it should so I think it looks creepy.
