The Red-winged Blackbird is found throughout North and Central America. Breeding habitats spread from Alaska, Newfoundland and Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, Mexico and Guatemala. Some populations may also be found in El Salvador, Honduras and Costa Rica. Winters may be spent in Pennsylvania and British Columbia, but northern populations usually migrate south to Mexico and the southern United States. This species typically feed on seeds and insects. These birds also nest in small colonies and migrate in single-sex flocks. Nests are built in cattails, grasslands or willow bushes. The conservation rating for the Red-winged Blackbird is Least Concern.
