Yellow Head Blackbirds?
Posted By: Bob Harris, 03-22-2012, 10:55 PM

Along with the hummingbirds migrating through the area along the Colorado River, these birds stopped in for 2 days and the photos I posted were concentrated on one bird who seemed to be the leader. While others flew around and searched for positions in the tree, he only moved once and that was only about a foot while I was watching the birds. He seemed to look with curiousity or humor at his traveling band of friends.

Cool pictures Bob, that are indeed Yellow-headed Blackbirds and Red-winged blackbirds but that are all males, what happened to the females? Thanks for showing us these.
Not sure about that Heinrich, maybe that is why they were flying and fluttering around, trying to attract the gals.

It looks like there are also a couple of male Brown-headed Cowbirds (Molothrus ater) in the flock. They're the ones with the slight brown iridescence on their heads.
Thanks so much for looking and commenting, there are a lot of folks on this forum that have so much knowledge about the birds species. I learn everyday here. Bob
