- Fri, 13 Jan 2006 -- At about 10:00 this morning there was a male TRICOLORED
BLACKBIRD among the 150 Brewer's Blackbirds in the trees at the south
marina at Lake Mendocino. There was also an adult BALD EAGLE sitting in a
tree across the lake at the end of the spit by Miti boat-in campground.

- For about five days now I have had a tricolored blackbird coming to my feeders. This is the
first time. I have had redwinged blackbirds and Brewer's for years. One interesting thing is
I have watched it on occasion be very aggressive and keep all other blackbirds from even
landing on the feeders.
21 March 2015 - Saturday – One lone male TRICOLORED BLACKBIRD with a mixed flock of blackbirds in the fabulous garden/yard of Ben & Kate Frey’s at Hopland … near the closed elementary school. The fact that the bird was vocalizing is what drew my attention to it. I suspect that Hopland may get another breeding colony this year if we are lucky. In the past there have been small colonies on two different privately-owned ponds.
