Yellow-headed Blackbird images and information:

Xanthocephalus xanthocephalus

  • The Yellow-headed Blackbird feeds, breeds and roosts in freshwater wetlands that have emergent vegetation such as cattails, rushes and tall reeds.
  • They are aggressive towards Red-winged Blackbirds who share their habitat and will take over prime nesting areas.
  • Yellow-headed Blackbirds are migratory and can be seen migrating in huge flocks at times.
  • Yellow-headed Blackbirds eat insects in the summer and seeds during the colder months.
  • The females and juveniles are less colorful than an adult male and they are brown instead of basically black.
  • They lay 3 to 5 eggs and the incubation period is 11 to 13 days.

I hope you enjoy viewing my Yellow-headed Blackbird photos.
