Dear Dave and Tweeters,
This type of aberrant Red-winged Blackbird is what I like to call the "Giant American Restart" plumage. I have come across these birds four times, all in Skagit County.
--4-18-04 at my house near Cockreham Island;
--2-26-05 when I was asked to come look at what the homeowner thought was an exotic bird on Guemes Island;
--10-30-05 on Farm-to-Market Road on the Samish Flats;
--10-09-2010 on Gardner Road north of Burlington.
They certainly are beautiful when they have this type of mutation!
Yours truly,
Gary Bletsch

Dalton Spencer found very unusual Blackbird today at a marsh near Lincoln Creek Rd. and Cooks Hill Rd. in Galvin. It's a blackbird with a very unusual plumage, so odd, you think it's a different species. We believe it to be a Red-winged, but if you have any comments please let us know your thoughts on this bird.To contact Dalton directly, use   offthehookflyshop at yahoo.comA link to the picture of this bird is;
