Baby Birdorable: Yellow-headed Blackbird

November 5th, 2010 in Baby Birds, Blackbirds 3 comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Yellow-headed Blackbird. Yellow-headed Blackbird nests are open cups built using reeds and grasses. These are attached to living or dead tall reeds above water. They nest in the same habitat as Red-winged Blackbirds and Marsh Wrens.
