metro locations for yellowheaded black birds?

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can find Yellowhead blackbirds in metro area. I need to get some photos. There used to be a colony on spring lake (Scott county) but I didn't see any last time I was there.

Yellowhead, thanks for signing up! Great to have you on HSO/FM and the bird watching board.

Yellow-headed blackbirds may be common in some parts of the metro, but they feed primarily on an invertebrate that needs pretty clean water, so it can be hit or miss.

Someone will no doubt chime in with a few exact locations pretty soon.

I've seen some out by Silver Lake. I don't remeber what time of year it was so they may have just been passing thru. None by me, I know that for sure.

I've seen them on Spring lake this year next to prior lake as well as Cedar Lake and Fish lake just south of there.

I have seen them on Forest lake. Lake three by the public access there is some catails that are surrounded with water. I have seen them there before.

Good luck,

Dave
