- Aug 29, 2003Friday, 29 August, 2003, an immature Yellow-headed Blackbird is hanging
out with a flock of mixed blackbirds at the irrigated pasture/small
vineyard at the entrance to the UC Hopland Research & Extension
Center. From East Side Road just north of the "Old Hopland/Hwy 175"
community, go about 1/2 mile until you see an irrigated clover/grass
pasture on your left. The flock was hanging around the east side of the
pasture near the sheep and vineyard. It is yellow only on the throat and
breast with buffy marks on the face and no white on the wings. It
associates with the brewer's and opposed to the red-winged, but the flock
is mixed. Seen by Bob Keiffer and Chuck Vaughn. Detailed map to HREC is
on the HREC website at my signature.
