Was this taken on the West coast?

This is actually a Tricolored Blackbird, not a Red-winged Blackbird

RWBB have a yellow border on the shoulder, this guy has a white boarder

I'm on the east coast too, and the wing color of the Red Winged Blackbird looks just like your images. You can do a search on here, or on Google.

Interesting. I asked if it was sighted on the west coast because the Tricolored Blackbird's range is mainly in California. If you took this on the east coast then it is very unlikely that it is this species. But it isn't impossible because birds have wings and they tend to end up in places they aren't normally found 😄.

This is intriguing because the white boarder on the epaulette as opposed to the yellow is the main difference between these species. But I am not from this area, so it is out of my zone of knowledge 😀

Do you have any more photos of him with the epaulettes (shoulder patches) more pronounced ? It could help more with the ID

Perhaps the white balance was off for the ambient light? That might show a pale yellow as white with so little of the epaulette showing.

That's a good point Stephen. Could definitely be a lighting issue :)
