Subject: [MDBirding] Please help me identify this bird
Pete Dunne gave the best tip for this ID on a walk I was lucky enough to do during a Cape May Spring Festival: if it looks like a sparrow who beefed up on steroids, you've most often got a female Red-winged Blackbird. Barring some nuance factors of time and place, he really nailed a pretty darn reliable ID consideration for me over the years.
