With the arrival of the Yellow Headed Blackbirds came my opportunity to grab a couple of photos. Although there were no females in sight these two fellows seemed to be sizing one another up for the sparring to come. Taken on our acreage in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada

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.
