Yellow Headed Blackbird

Males are striking black birds with yellow heads and chests, and black bodies with prominent white patches at the bend of the wing. Females and immatures are brown instead of black, with duller yellow heads. Immature males show some white at the bend of the wing, while females don’t.Yellow-headed Blackbirds breed and roost in freshwater wetlands with dense, emergent vegetation such as cattails.
