I heard the unmistakable sound of two "singing" (ok, "vocalizing") male Yellow-headed Blackbirds in the cat-tails on the East end of Harriman Lake (Kipling and Quincy) just now. Was finally rewarded with a good look at one of them when it was driven off its patch by one of the hundreds of aggressive, squabbling Red-winged males that are nesting there. I'm assuming the Yellow heads are nesting as well, otherwise why suffer the abuse...? This would be the second time ever that I've seen them at this location, and the first time this late in the year.
