Building habitat for Tricolored Blackbirds
Yolo Audubon was recently awarded a grant from National Audubon, through Audubon California, for further work on an existing project on behalf of the Tricolored Blackbird. Local landowners John Anderson and Bruce Rominger began the project last year on their property in the west county, to provide secure nesting habitat for Tricolored Blackbirds. The $5,000 grant, plus $2,500 from Yolo Audubon, will contribute to the completion of new nesting habitat in a region where such habitat is believed to be limiting the abundance of the Tricolored Blackbird.
