A friendly Visitor

There are quite a few of these birds around but I don't have a clue what they are. Though fast moving, they don't seem to mind me sitting just a few feet away.

I just had to look him up -- actually her. The reddish part at the top of the wing gives it away. She is a female redwing blackbird and there I was hoping for something exotic. But she does look very sharp.
