Why are you reporting this puzzle?
I was driving through the northeaster corner of New Mexico four falls ago. Shortly before I crossed the border into Texas, I spotted this Yellow-headed Blackbird. I normally see these birds only in the reeds and cattails of ponds and rivers. This one was out in the open on dry land with no pond in sight. This is a Juvenile male blackbird. The mature males are more striking because their head is bright yellow all the way around.
