Red-winged blackbirds are some of the first birds I hear in the spring from the pond just outside my studio in Golden Valley. They are so loud, and have so much to say. I imagine their squawks yelling out to me as I walk in the building, 

“Working hard, or hardly working?” 

When the sun finally rises higher than clouds in the spring, this Beatles song is queued in my mind, and I love to think of red-winged black birds sunning themselves listening to it, of course, they’d need to wear shades.
