The Yellow-headed Blackbird (xanthocephalus xanthocephalus)is a North American bird and forages in the marsh, in fields or on the ground; they sometimes catch insects in flight. They mainly eat seeds and insects. Their main method of foraging is to push their bill into the ground or a food item and then force their bill, as well as the substrate, open. Outside of the nesting period, they often feed in flocks, often with other blackbirds. This bird's song resembles the grating of a rusty hinge.
During the summer, this bird migrates north to the west-central portions of Canada and the United States. During the winter, it can be found from California to Texas as well as in Mexico and casually in Costa Rica.
