eBird checklist with full details: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S34984496
I observed a banded male tricolored blackbird.
I observed about 1100 tricolored blackbirds feeding on seeds in a pile of hay along Panoche Road. Of these, I estimated that 900 were males and 200 were females. There was a large nesting colony along Panoche Creek last year. These birds might form a colony, again this year. My primary purpose for stopping here was specifically to count tricolored blackbirds.
I have an image of this bird and it would be nice to be able to add images to these files.
