Yellow Headed Black-Bird

DesertDale is at it once again.  This time it is the "Yellow Headed Black-Bird."  They satay in the western  marshes in the summer time.  Outside
the nesting season, they wonder in flock in open habitats , like open farm fields, feed lots an the prairies.
 
 
The name describes the male, who has a white wing patch . DesertDale they have a very nice sound.
 Female are smaller, sooty, brown, with no white wing patch, if they do it is very hard to see .
Their range from April to October Nevada and Utah.  Sept.- April Arizona and New Mexico.
 
Enjoy the photos.  Kitfoxgal
