Red-winged Blackbirds

At dusk this evening a large flock of Red-winged Blackbirds was swirling around a marshy area, occasionally perching on trees and powerlines nearby. They were wanting to go to their nighttime roost in the withered cattails standing in the water, but a Sharp-shinned Hawk was already there waiting for them. Eventually they all made it down and the marsh fell silent, but I suspect that one of the Redwings became dinner for the Sharpie.
