Hi all,

I managed to dig out a Yellow-headed Blackbird today among a mixed group of European Starlings, Red-winged and Brewer's Blackbirds, and a few Brown-headed Cowbirds at Martindale Flats on the Saanich Peninsula. It is a pretty very uncommon bird in the Victoria area, so it was an exciting find. I managed to get some photos of it and thought I'd share a couple:

great blog Jeremy and thanks for your generosity in sharing your finds!
enjoyed dipping into your friend's blog too. the fresh new Elk calf crying it's way across the lake swimming behind Momma was sweet. such a tender moment.

Thanks for passing it along, Gloria! I wish I had more time to get out because there are many Top Tweet birds around!
