A yellow-headed blackbird for mellow yellow monday

This beautiful yellow-header blackbird was photographed by my brother Roger who lives in AirdrieAlberta, Canada. I have featured some of Roger's photos before as he graciously shares them with me. I once saw Yellow-header blackbirds many years ago( but definitely not here in New Brunswick, for they are not native here) while en route to Alberta traveling through North Dakota and Montana along U.S. highway #2. This handsome species fascinates me. Well done Roger.Thanks for sharing . Roger paints in oils and recently( currently) has one of his paintings on exhibit by Airdrie Transit having had one of his paintings selcted for Airdrie Transit's Art In Motion Program. Well done , Roger I anticipate seeing this Yellow-headed blackbird on canvas soon. My apologies for being a bit late with this posting as I was busy yesterday participating in part two of a root canal It went very well and is all done now! Glad to have it finished!

I've always wanted to see one of these. Such a beautiful combination. The yellow head is so bright.
