Female Red Wing

  1. Hi all, Male red-wing are all over the place and I think this is the first time I shot a female. I was walking alone the edge of the lake when all of a sudden the males were circling around me and this female landed right in front of me. I guess I was getting pretty to her nest because she really puffed up when she spotted me. Is this some type of defense mechanism?

    Thanks for looking!
