Yellow-headed Blackbird Male
Golden rays of the sunset behind me and a male yellow headed blackbird in front of me. Spells a perfect ending to the day.
My first capture of a yellow headed blackbird to date, even if it seems to have an orange head. Yes, the head color really was orange it isn't processed this way.
The adult male is mainly black and normally has a yellow head and breast; they have a white wing patch sometimes only visible in flight. Although, I have read that their diet can change the coloring of the head.
The blackbird forages mainly by walking on the ground in open fields or near the water's edge.
The birds make a funny almost frog like call, at least that's the way I describe the sound.
