Blackbird Removal Information

Behavior:

    • Blackbirds are social birds that can live in colonies of more than 100 birds.
    • Females choose a nesting area in plants, lawns, buildings, golf courses, sage brush, fields, marsh, grasslands, and woodlands.
    • The female will build the open nest cup from plant materials, lined with dry grassy material and use mud or manure to cement the nest together.
    • The blackbird’s eggs are varied in color and pattern to protect from predators. The female may lie up to 7 eggs at a time with the young hatching approximately 17 days.
    • These birds will eat almost anything; from seeds to insects, but have been known to eat small frogs, young ring-necked pheasants, and brewer’s sparrows.

Identifying Characteristics:

    • Males are glossy black with metallic greenish-blue and purple feathers on the body and yellowish eyes. Females are brown, darker on the tails and wings and have dark eyes.
    • Blackbirds have long legs, round head and body with a thick long beak.
    • Their long legs give them a stop-go kind of walk, making its head jerking like a chicken’s head.
