How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The common name for the Red-winged Blackbird is taken from the mainly black adult male's distinctive red shoulder patches, or "epaulets", which are visible when the bird is flying or displaying. At rest, the male also shows a pale yellow wingbar. The female is blackish-brown and paler below. Behavior The Red-Winged Blackbird can be very aggressive while defending its territory from other animals and birds. It will attack much larger birds, such as crows, ravens, magpies, birds of prey and herons if they enter. Only on a very few documented occasions have they been known to attack humans who encroach upon their territories during mating.
