During Memorial Day Weekend 2011 I saw my first Yellow Headed Blackbird. I so wanted to get a shot but both the location and lighting we not helping me achieve my goal.

I spent some time at Sensiba Wildlife Area with fellow RB’er Jeff Weymier and was able to haul in a number of Yellow Headed Blackbird photos.

    I recently saw one of these in a RB image on display! The lady told me they were western birds. Living in the south I had never seen one. I will be flying out to Oregon this fall and hope to see one while there. Beautiful!

  • Thank you Robert. Here is a little info page that might be valuable

    Thanks Scott, that helped. I live way too far east to see these birds!

    Awesome capture Scott. Never seen one of these birds before.

  • Thanks Don. They migrate from the North and South US. They actually have a pretty large range in the North. Up until a couple weeks ago I had never seen one either.
