What She Said

Red-winged Blackbird female (Agelaius phoeniceus)

This is the first opportunity I had to capture the female Red-winged Blackbird vocalizing. It wasn’t much in musical terms — just a short ‘wup’ repeated over and over. What is she saying? I wonder if the message was, “Leave me alone!” Several males hung out in the vicinity, but none of them tried to approach her.
