In the preceding chapters we have explored decision-making by female and
male Red-winged Blackbirds during the breeding season under the assumption
that decision rules are key components of the design for fitness. We viewed the
life history of an organism as a sequence of choices, each of which influences
lifetime reproductive success (LRS) and, hence, fitness. We employed actor-
based accounts to analyze the redwing social system because we believe that
social systems ...

The Unicolored Blackbird wears silky black plumage so glossy that he needs no
additional adornment. The female Yellow-hooded Blackbird has a yellowish
head and bright yellow eyebrows and breast. Female Marsh-nesting Yellow-
shouldered and Tawny-shouldered blackbirds hardly differ Blackbirds from their
largely black mates. Females of other species are mostly 12 streaked with brown,
black, olive, or a yellowish color and look very different from the males.
Blackbirds' bills are ...

The influence of habitat patch size on blackbirds is inconclusive. Herkert (1994)
discovered red-winged blackbirds more often in small habitat patches than in
large ones. In comparison, Helzer and Jelinski (1999) found red-winged
blackbirds more often in large patches than in small ones. Schafer (1996) noted
no relationships between patch size and nest success rates for yellow-headed
blackbirds but found that red-winged blackbird nest success rates were higher in
smaller patches ...

The blackbirds' racket reverberated in the treetops. They shrieked; they flapped
their wings; they waved their posters; they hopped up and down on the branches.
They made so much noise that villagers living five miles away could hear the
ruckus. Old farmer Sam heard all the commotion and spat on the ground. His
patience was at an end. He said to himself, “It's time to end the racket of those
noisy, scheming blackbirds with an honest volley of grapeshot.” Old Sam went to
the barn to ...

Blackbirds. The last time I saw her, confined to hospital bed in compact tribal
housing, my mother's mother lay evaporating before my eyes. I don't even feel
alive, she said. She asked for water, and between small sips from a straw, slowly
smiled. Grandma told us to look for blackbirds, she said, that they always go to
water. You won't ever be lost or thirsty if you follow the blackbirds. Eyes closed, I
drink in her fluttering voice trying to quench the imminent drought, as flashes of
