Red-breasted Blackbird

Leistes militaris (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Red-breasted Blackbird (Sturnella militaris) is a passerine bird in the New World family Icteridae. Despite its name and colouration, it is in the same genus as the meadowlarks, and is less closely related to the Red-winged Blackbird group. It is unrelated to the European Blackbird, which is a thrush. Source: Wikipedia
