Blackbird well skilled at diversionary tactics
This agitated Red-Winged Blackbird was doing everything he could to catch my attention and draw it away from his nest in Mishawaka's (Indiana) Central Park on the St. Joseph River. When I turned around, he would fly in front of me to keep me looking at him
I didn't see the nest, but I got a good idea where it was when I walked over to a tree near the overlook by the dam. He made a couple of close swooshes past me to make sure I was focusing on him.
He was a darned good watchman.
