2. Closer view of Yellow-headed Blackbird males.
Mary Ann Flett says: "They were in a tree at daybreak one
morning [in mid-February], near Collinsville, in
Solano County. Specifically, they were near the 'T' intersection of Shiloh/Birds Landing Rd. and
Day Use Rd., by a house and old barn. There
were tricolored, red-winged, and Brewer's
blackbirds, all in the same tree with them... It
was a somewhat feeble second attempt to take
a photograph through my scope with my little
digital camera (and no adapter!) - fun, though."
