Hmmm so not a redwinged blackbird right? NEW
by: GaryE

Ok the fact that you emphatically state that the yellow is not on the shoulder means you do not think it was a red-winged blackbird right?

Because that is the only mostly black bird with some yellow that I can find that frequents south central Louisiana this time of year.

I guess it could be a Lark Bunting that is a few hundred miles from home but that does not match your description . . . does it? http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Lark_Bunting/id it is too white not yellow but in some pictures it appears a little yellow.

The only other bird I can come up with is an American redstart but that is yellow more mid-wing than on the tips and it only appears in Louisiana during migration and it is a little early for migration but I guess it is possible . . . is this your bird http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/American_Redstart/id ? It is also a little more orange than yellow.

Let us know if any of these look about right or what?

Hope this helps!

Gary
