This observation reminds me of a Bigfoot sighting; I only had a fleeting look at these Yellow-headed Blackbirds, my pictures are poor and out of focus, and I have never seen one of these birds since.

Yellow-headed Blackbirds are only in North Texas for a few weeks during their fall and spring migrations. I observed these birds in May of 2006 at Stewart Creek Park in The Colony. There were several individuals present at this location. They spent their time foraging for insects in the short grass next to the road.
