The Red-winged Blackbird is a species of bird related to orioles, grackles, and other blackbirds. They are widespread across much of North America. Birds that summer farther north are migratory. Males are black overall, with red and yellow wing patches. Red-winged Blackbirds nest in wetlands and marshes, building their nests in cattails, grasses, and other vegetation.
