Unusual sighting for February

You can tell I wasn't ready for these shots.....but I got them.
I was getting ready to go out, and there he was perched on a chair by
the feeder. I couldn't believe a Red Winged Blackbird could be
here in February. I am used to seeing them in the fields in
the spring while trolling for deer pictures.

Definitely not good shots, but you can sure tell it is what it is.

That wing patch is a dead giveaway. This bird eats seeds
and bugs and berries and fruit so I don't have a clue what it
would be doing here in cold weather with snow cover on the ground
