Yellow-Headed Blackbird, Male
Springerville, AZ - Sipe White Mountain Wildlife Area - With a golden head, a white patch on black wings, and a call that sounds like a rusty farm gate opening, the Yellow-Headed Blackbird demands your attention. Look for them in western and prairie wetlands, where they nest in reeds directly over the water. They’re just as impressive in winter, when huge flocks seem to roll across farm fields. Each bird gleans seeds from the ground, then leapfrogs over its flock mates to the front edge of the ever-advancing troupe.
