Help bird ID in Rocky Mountain National Park, 5/22/2019

Recommended Posts

I saw these three birds in Sheep Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park on 5/22/2019. They were in a flock and made a repeated "chi" flight call. Please help for ID.

agreed. These should all be females. These days I can spot these and have no problem but earlier on in my birding, they  sure threw me as I was so used to seeing a red-winged blackbird as, well as a red-winged blackbird. During migration, males and females often travel in separate flocks so it would be easy to see a BIG flock of red-winged males and just assume that they all looked like that.
Anyway, I'm rambling. That's just to say that when you're learning to ID birds, that's an easy one to end up scratching your head on.
