Red-winged Blackbird

There are five species of the blackbirds in North America, the Red-winged Blackbird and the Rusty Blackbird are the only two that may be seen in eastern North America, while the Brewer's Blackbird, Yellow-headed Blackbird and Tricolored Blackbird are seen from the Central regions of North America to the Western coastlines.

The families of blackbirds are the most abundant bird types on the continent. These birds form flocks where one can see thousands of different types of mixed blackbirds as they gather in the Spring and Fall migrations. Although, there is an abundance of blackbirds, they are shy of humans and will try and avoid any close contact.
