Redwing Pond was named for its redwinged blackbirds, which loved the pondshore’s cattails.
Dr. James J. S. Johnson
Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water? (Job 8:11)
Wetlands are defined by their mix of hydrophilic plants (such as “rush” and “flags” and cattails), wetland hydrology, and hydric soils. And redwinged blackbirds love cattails.
Those cattails look like corny dogs on stalks!
