Today's bird is the Yellow Headed Blackbird. Down here, they're not extremely common, so when there's a flock of them, someone usually posts about it or folks are chatting about it when I check into a state park. I found out about this group from Huck, who's a volunteer bird guide at Estero Llano Grande State Park in Weslaco. The birds all around are a mix of other stuff (mostly Red Winged Black Birds and Bronzed Cowbirds), but what I came for were the Yellow-Headed and there were about 8 of them (you can see a couple in the background of this photo). I took this picture at the Weslaco Lakes Granary Storage Facility on March 3, 2012.
