YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD

Yellow-Headed Blackbirds stand out with their bright yellow heads and stark black bodies, the females are duller yellow and more brown than black. They can be found by fresh water wetlands, shallow marshes, or mountain meadows. Yellow-Headed Blackbirds eat insects such as beetles, caterpillars, or grasshoppers, also will eat seeds from grass or weeds. They forage by walking on the ground, although sometimes they will catch insects in flight. I have seen them lately perched on sunflowers or sitting close to the ponds in the area where I live. Here is one by a pond in front of a Blue Spruce.
