Talking Heard New Bird Call, Like and Exotic Tropical Sound!

And it turned out to be this guy! He is a Yellow-Headed Blackbird, or to be more technical a Xanthocephalux xanthocephalus!


I read up on them and the "metallic" sound he makes is "usual" for him, but the "tropical" sound that is coming out of him is bizzar! I could swear someone's parrot or Amazon type bird was out! He has been making these calls for three days now and I am wondering if it is a mating call or something. Absolutely AWESOME. Here are more pictures of him. They live around here, but it is the first year that I have heard their "call". It's WILD!



Some places where I feed the birds, I leave the weeds growing so that they feel "safe". Sounds weird, I know, but the quail love it. And some of the weeds are actually the seed that has grown and they eat the seeds from it. LOL. Hope you enjoy the pictures. >^..^<

LOL! Here are the pictures back! I rearranged a bunch of my pictures in Photobucket today and had no idea that by simply "grouping" my pictures into different albums that it would delete them here! But it did. So, I added them again here below. Sorry. I learned something new.
