Artist's Description

This is the first sighting of this species for me. About 50 to 60 blackbirds came into the feeder area. The majority were Red Winged Blackbirds but there were a few of these guys. So lovely. There were also a couple of females but amid the flurry they were elusive and my shots were poor. They were also larger in body size then the Red Winged Blackbirds. This bird with it’s brilliant yellow head, together with its loud, rusty-hinge call, make the Yellow-headed Blackbird a conspicuous presence. It breeds in loose colonies and places its nest over water, attached to cattails and reeds. Taken on our acreage in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Canon Rebel XSI
