Yellow-headed Blackbird 1 This is very much a tentative listing. The bird may have been seen by a (very experienced) birder quickly ducking into a patch of reeds with a group of red-wings between lakes 4 & 5 as heavy rains began. Yellow-headed blackbirds have been clearly seen near this spot in the last year or so.
Red-winged Blackbird
Brown-headed Cowbird
