Nature and You Lecture Series: Tricolored Blackbirds – ONLINE

Tricolored blackbirds (Agelaius tricolor) look very much like the abundant and widespread red-winged blackbird, to which they are closely related, but they are a distinct and unique species with different behaviors.  The Tricolored blackbird is highly gregarious and breeds in colonies that historically numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Today, their entire population has declined to less than 200,000 and continues to decline.  Join UC Davis Biologist and Tricolored blackbird expert, Bob Meese, to hear about this interesting local bird, the challenges it faces, and the science of monitoring this species.
