I have just released a new video, “Red-winged Blackbird Nest Selection”.
This video focuses a bit more on a scientific result. A 1992 study in the journal Animal Behavior by Yasukawa, Whittenberger, and Nielsen studied how Red-winged Blackbirds select nest sites through experimentally adding high perches in different parts of a habitat. This paper is evidence that they take the availability of high perching sites to be important. The video contains more details and some interesting footage of the female Red-winged Blackbird as well.

As usual, I love sharing some images that I took around the time of filming.
