The Red Winged Blackbird
The Red Winged Blackbird is the bird I remembered as a child.
Two colors on the badge of its wing, yellow and red.
He would make his distinctive call and I would imitate.
He and I were friends, that Red Winged Blackbird.
Haven’t seen one around for decades.
Wonder if they will return and what will be happening when they do.
