Red-winged Blackbird Agelaius phoeniceus

Widespread and common throughout at low- to mid-elevation wetlands offering suitable microhabitat of emergent vegetation such as cattails and small willows. At home in large, natural wetlands of all types but also uses small, shallow wetlands created by human activities, including roadside ditches, waste areas, and agricultural runoff. In Kittitas County, may share breeding marshes with Yellow-headed Blackbirds.
