This bird is a common sight to see at the lake. These birds love to hang out both in the reeds and trees near the shoreline. They are very noisy little birds that can be heard from far away. The males have brilliant red patches on their wings that look stunning on them as they are in flight. The females are a more brown color but are equally as pretty. They are fun birds to photograph for sure.
