Dickcissel Spiza americana

Dickcissels are common throughout grasslands of the Midwest. The birds are five-and-three-quarter inches long and have chestnut backs. Males have yellow breasts with black bibs and often perch on fences while delivering their dick-dick-dickcissel song. They are often vocal through the heat of the day. Most dickcissels winter in Venezuela and return to their breeding range in May.
