Yellow-headed Blackbird

There were dozens of Yellow-headed Blackbirds around the town of Star, Idaho this morning.  I got this guy singing while perched on the ground.  The yellow contrasting with the black has always been eye-catching.  In flight there is nice patch of white too.


  1. Beautiful bird ~ I've never seen one of these in person!!

  2. There are a bunch of these at a pond near Deer Flat and Cloverdale, too, Robert. I see you're practicing your photography. Nice!
