Subject: FW: IBET Is this a Dickcissel?

Seven out of seven concur that the bird in the photo is a Dickcissel. Thank you all for promptly getting back to me.

For some reason I thought it was going to be a larger bird, so although the patterns /colors were accurate to the description, I was surprised by the size.

Thanks again so much for your help!

If anyone has the time to quickly check the photo I have posted under Dickcissel at to confirm that is the species (I think it’s a female) I would appreciate it.

Thank you so much.

Quick update: the Bluebirds that were contemplating a nest box we offered (but were seemingly in competition with Tree swallows) have settled in after a long absence. The female is incubating.

The Tree Swallows were offered an alternate next box, and currently have four babies that are just getting pin feathers.
