Sharing another Blackbird with you – literally a member of the Icteridae family – that which encompasses all things blackbird. In this case, the Yellow-hooded Blackbird. Not to be confused with the Yellow-headed Blackbird that’s resident in North America. Ours is smaller and the boundaries of the yellow hood of the male are slightly different.
As with most icterids, the males are noisy and are constantly seeking attention. For those of us toting cameras, they tend to always make willing subjects.
Females aren’t black at all, and in my opinion are more attractive than their male counterparts.
