Red-winged Blackbird

This nonsensical mnemonic is a harbinger of spring for many North American birders. When the first KONK-LA-REE is heard in the early months of the year, warblers and other migrants are usually not too far behind. With their jubilant song and flashy red epaulets, RWBL know how to usher in the silly season for birdwatchers!
