Singing Dickcissel by cyclewidow
The Dickcissel is a small grassland bird that breeds across parts of the Midwest in the United States. These migratory birds head south to Central and South America during the winter months. Male Dickcissels in breeding plumage are extremely bright and beautiful, as you can see in our Birdorable version of this species. Dickcissels are named for their song, part of which sounds like they are yelling "dick! dick! cissss cissss..."
Tomorrow's bird is a bird in the Rallidae family with an almost worldwide distribution. Can you guess what it will be?
