A miscellany like Grandma’s attic in Taunton, MA or Mission Street's Thrift Town in San Francisco or a Council, ID yard sale in cloudy mid April or a celestial roadmap no one folded—you take your pick.
"For the beauty of the earth..."! I wish I could draw musical notes here - for that's what this picture makes me feel, music as praise.
Hi Karen: Thanks! I love the yellow-headed blackbirds, tho they have quite harsh song--sometimes described as sounding like a creaking door! They sound like harsh-voiced redwings.
I don't think I've ever seen a yellow-headed blackbird - but I'll be watching for them, the next time I'm in your part of the world. Beautiful bird.
Hi Sandra: According to the guidebooks, they do range into western Canada, so you might see one closer to home. Like redwinged blackbirds, they like marshy land. They're notoriously "shy," however. They are very striking!
