Red winged blackbirds along the Jordan River in Utah

I saw another red winged blackbird today. I've seen quite a few of them in past months. They are a beautiful bird -- pure black with a splotch of red and a bit of yellow on their wing. The following picture was taken from the web. Click the picture for a larger image.

I just love them.. especially when they "chirp".. it almost sounds like a little squeek. I dont see them often here in NJ though..

They do have a unique chirp. The only place I've seen them around here is on the river banks.
