Brewer's Blackbirds

Euphagus cyanocephalus


I saw these Brewer's Blackbirds perched on the outer banks of North Carolina. There was a strong cold wind blowing, which the birds faced into while clinging to the beach grass.


Their breeding habitat is open and semi-open areas, often near water, across central and western North America. The cup nest can be located in various locations: in a tree, in tall grass or on a cliff. They often nest in colonies.
