Brewer’s Blackbird

Euphagus cyanocephalus

A wide-ranging bird, the Brewer’s Blackbird, though often found around outdoor food venues, it is equally at home in wild rural settings. I have seen this bird often in the Great Basin. While these birds are found year round in the western USA and southern British Colombia, in places east of the Rocky Mountains like central Colorado, eastern Wyoming and Montana, and Alberta Canada and across the northern tier states to the Great Lakes, Brewer’s Blackbirds are strictly summer visitors. In the southern USA from Arizona to the Carolinas and Florida, and into most of Mexico, winter is the only season where these birds are normally seen.

Many of my meetings with Brewer’s Blackbirds have been in California, but Oregon and Utah have provided me with enjoyable encounters with these birds.
