Red-winged Blackbird

There has been a red-winged blackbird singing in my backyard for about a week now. Yesterday he came to the feeder and I got this great shot:

Male red-winged blackbird
I'm not sure if they normal visit feeders, I know that they like marsh habitats and the nearby meadowlands might be close enough for this guy to visit. His red patch does not look to healthy though, more of an orange.

Also, that makes the blackbird family: Icteridae the most common in my backyard with 3 species: BH cowbird, common grackle and RW blackbird.
