Breeding male Dickcissels are colorful with yellow, rust, black and white all featuring in their plumage. In their color pattern they somewhat resemble another grassland bird, the Eastern Meadowlark.
Dickcissels feed primarly on insects and seeds. They are named for their unique song, which sounds like it is saying "dick! dick! ciss ciss ciss."
