Yellow Headed Blackbird Portrait


The unseasonably warm weather we are having has left me feeling that I should be seeing more birds on my daily walk. To fill the void until spring actually returns this photograph we took last spring of a nice looking Male Yellow Headed Blackbird will have to do the trick.

      1. This is my second cycle through the alphabet. I think next cycle will all be portraits of famous people. No photo, only the letter clue and the drawing, and we’ll see how many people can guess. I really enjoy portraits. It’s a very weird journey I’m on. I never know where this train is gonna take me.

        Thanks for the permission for this bird, I’ll enjoy it with such a tight shot. πŸ™‚

  1. A yellow headed black bird? I never knew such a thing existed. I just thought all black birds were…well…black (with maybe a little bit of white)! The yellow looks unreal – almost wax-like because it is so glossy. . Thanks for the education!

    1. Hi Jane, Well around here our Blackbirds mainly come not all black if yo can believe that. We have the Yellow Headed guys as well as the Red-Winged version which reside in the cat-tails around ponds in the summer. Hope your day is going great.

    1. He is quite a good looking fellow. We do not see these guys in our local areas but if we travel as little as 30 miles to the east of Denver we can. What a difference a few miles makes. Hope your day is going well.

    1. Hi, yes that yellow is sure vibrant and this guys should be doing well attracting the ladies which such color. Can’t wait until real spring and the return of the blackbirds to our area.

    Beautiful! We have the red wings, but not these in northern NM, but we saw some south west of Albuquerque in a wetland area. Nice crisp photo!

    1. HI, we have both the red winged and yellow headed nearby but we usually have to drive a bit for the yellow guys. Thanks for the feedback and taking the time to give ti we really appreciate it. Hope you have a great weekend.

feedback welcome
