Artist's Description

Featured in Songbirds Of North America Group July 16, 2010

Well, imagine my surprise as I sifted through my photos and found this one lonely shot and realized I had got a good capture of the female Yellow Headed Blackbird. I got right excited. With fifty odd birds going a flutter everywhere around the feeder and the trees(I guess the were happy to be back) it was difficult to get any good lines for a decent captures. Here were all these wonderful birds and they were literally doing what I would call the bird dance. It was frustrating so I just kept clicking the button hoping I would luck out. Earlier today I found one or two of the male I liked but thought I had had no luck with the females and now here we go. A good shot of one female, She is lovely and I am happy as can be. I hope everyone enjoys the capture as much as I am. Taken on our acreage in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Canon Rebel XSI.
