Brewer’s Blackbird

The Brewer’s Blackbird is another species (like the Chipping Sparrow) that is considered to be common in Washington, but which we have seen very few times. They are found in disturbed habitats—lawns, urban parks, vacant lots, and farm and pasturelands. This blackbird is found across most of western North America and has expanded its range east into eastern Ontario and Michigan. Most surveys show steady populations across the continent. Erika and I found this Brewer’s Blackbird across the road from the Scatter Creek Wildlife Recreation Area about 20 miles south of Olympia on 22 May 2021. (I am not sure how wildlife recreates.)
