South Lake Merced Yellow-headed Blackbird


Dan Murphy
 

A single hatch-year Yellow-headed Blackbird was at the west end of the Concrete Bridge on South Lake Merced this morning.  It was with the flock of 75 or so mostly male Red-winged Blackbirds.  The blackbird was almost skulking and did not come out in the open when someone started feeding the flock.  A nice flock of Phalaropes was north of the bridge.  A scope would be necessary to identify them.  They were feeding around the bubbled rising from the aeration system off shore from the pumping station.
Good birding,
Dan Murphy

The Yellow-headed Blackbird continues, today right at the penguin statue east of the concrete bridge.
