Yellow headed blackbird!

This is a really pretty bird! Me and Muffy saw this lil fella out at the lakes yesterday.

Seems they only migrate through IL. I took this with Muffy's camera, because I didn't want to practice with my camera and miss him :lol:
Her camera takes excellent pics!

Great shot! I may have seen them when I was in MN, but I don't remember for sure so I'll say I haven't seen one, lol.

He sure is pretty. :)
