flyoverhere

whatever is on my mind….

slow Saturday….


I have been seeing this bird for two days.  They always show up here on their way farther north.  Probably in the next couple of days a large flock will show up and hang around for 3 or 4 days.  I always enjoy seeing them.  I tried to get a pic but he was being very illusive so I found one online.  Link posted below.

Its brilliant yellow head, together with its loud, rusty-hinge call, make the Yellow-headed Blackbird a conspicuous presence in western wetlands. It breeds in loose colonies and places its nest over water, attached to cattails and reeds.

We only have a small man-made pond here so that is why they move on quickly.

  1. Such pretty birds. We get a cardinal and his mate every year. And Eldest has found a few shrikes hanging out around here, too 🙂

    • I know, we really enjoy the birds but we have yet to see a cardinal here on our farm. We do see them in town though.
