Yellow-headed Blackbird

Another painting for the birds!  :-) This bird photo is suggested from a photo on a U.S. Government website.

I like the vibrant colors of this bird.  It is becoming apparent to me that yellow is a color of the feathers of many birds.

We have bird feeders in our backyard and see many birds with yellow or orange.  I'm working on 2 Blue Jay paintings now and plan on a painting (or two or three) of Baltimore Oriole(s) which have a brilliant orange breast.

We also have one humming bird feeder near our dining room window.  Last year there were dozens of bumming birds, this year we've seen very few.  BUT!  The Baltimore Orioles liked the nectar as well as Downy Woodpeckers.  (We think that they are Downy Woodpeckers.)
