The pond is starting up again.

The water flow isn't on but the little pond is open and this red-winged blackbird was having a wonderful time having a bath.


In February.
In Canada.

Agelaius phoeniceus

Male Red-winged Blackbirds fiercely defend their territories during the breeding season, spending more than a quarter of daylight hours in territory defense. He chases other males out of the territory and attacks nest predators, sometimes going after much larger animals, including horses and people.
