I took this a couple days ago in our yard. We used to have yellow-headed blackbirds by the hundreds around here since we are close to a marsh, but we only see small flocks of them now. Not sure why...?

Wow, I like that shot. Nice contrast with the dark bird and white limbs. Tough to expose correctly!

They really are a beautiful bird & have a quite raspy call. Our bird book refers to their call as being compared to a rusty door hinge. lol

Thank you! Keep looking in those flocks of rwbb's as they hang pretty close to them alot.

Thank you & don't give up Sam. I have the same problem getting a decent shot of a magpie of all things & they are everywhere. I just can't get them to cooperate! lol! :)

Interesting looking bird, what with red winged and yellow headed blackbirds, I'm envious, we just get, well, black blackbirds, apart from the females who are brown.

I just wish we knew why their numbers are so few now. :confused: Thanks for looking.

Very nice shot. We have them here, but they seem to be late this year. Last year, they had started nesting and the wetlands got flooded out and drowned all the red wing and yellow head nests, along with virtually all the duck nests. It was bad.
