YHBB Scanning its Territory
Ridgefield NWR, WA, late spring 2009
Good habitat and behavior shot typical for these birds. They coexist well with red winged blackbirds but maintain their own territory. YHBB have a distinct call which is not melodic like the RWBBs, more of a low groan. Sadly this is as close as I could get to these birds with my current equipment and refuge restrictions.
