Yellow-headed Blackbirds at Lower Otay, Monday morning

Monday morning about 9 AM, there were 2 Yellow-headed Blackbirds in a flock of mostly Tricolored Blackbirds on the gravel beach just east of the parking lot and north of the boat launch at Lower Otay Lake.  Yellow-headed Blackbirds were dark brown with golden to buffy-yellow from face to breast, yellow vent and a very small white patch on folded wings, so likely first year males.  Blackbird flock moved around from beach to nearby trees, to other spots on or near beach.
