Yesterday (6.4.22) I had a better look at one of the YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD juveniles at the marsh (flooded field) along S 204th St (west of Frager Rd) in Kent.

Other birds at this location included male BLUE-WINGED & CINNAMON TEALS, an AMERICAN BITTERN fly over, and a male AMERICAN KESTREL eating a dragonfly. There is one adult male BROWN-HEADED COWBIRD with a very pale brown head which reminds me of male cowbirds I have seen in northern California.

At least one BANK SWALLOW continues at M Street in Auburn.

For every feather, preen, preen, preen, there is a reason.

Yesterday there was an adult female YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD with 3 juveniles at 204th Street in Kent. The nest was probably not far away. I had seen an (the?) adult female on 4 occasions in May at this same location. The parts that will be yellow on the young birds are still white or beige. At a distance they are easily confused with the many juvenile starlings.

The blackbirds were at the south end of the marsh which is west of the horse track on 204th, west of Frager Rd. in Kent. 3 videos: [ https://flic.kr/ps/376fhN | https://flic.kr/ps/376fhN ]
