Yellow on Black Calling His Mate

Yellow-headed Blackbirds were flying and displaying in the reeds in a large pond, and this beautiful male landed right in front of me and put on a full display for several moments before flying off. This male, in full display, flew from reed to reed and then landed on the one shown, and he then put his head back and called vigorously.
