Tri colored blackbird?

Recommended Posts

I am visiting Nantucket Massachusetts and saw this blackbird. I know the Tri colored is a west coast bird, but this bird has white instead of yellow. Is it a Tri Colored Blackbird?

No, almost definitely not, due to the range. Red-winged Blackbirds are very variable in their epaulet color. Even though most will have a yellow epaulet, some are very light yellow, very close to the white which is on Tricolored Blackbirds.

Thanks, I figured it was a Redwing but was hoping it was a Tricolored as it would be very rare here and a new bird to add to my list. again thank you!
