Artist's Description

A male yellow headed blackbird near Oxbow Bend, Grand Teton National Park, USA.

Nesting amongst reeds in marshes, the yellow headed blackbird feeds on insects and seeds.

Migratory in nature, yellow headed blackbirds breed through the central United States into northern Canada. Winter grounds extend from the southwestern United States well into central Mexico.

Common among songbirds, the male is the one blessed with spectacular plumage while females sport drab black and brown feathering.
