Yellow-headed Blackbird Xanthocephalus xanthocephalus

Fairly common but local in Kittitas County steppe-zone wetlands. Requires larger wetlands with deeper water than Red-winged Blackbirds; however, two species often found together. West of Cascade crest, one small breeding colony at Deer Lagoon on Whidbey Island continues active beyond close of atlas period. Migrants usually recorded sparsely from entire four-county area each year, well into June.
