Yellow-headed Blackbird-Goose Pond Style

Today my Avian Conservation class at IU was able to watch a singing Yellow-headed Blackbird.  While looking for a Common Gallinule a Yellow-headed Blackbird started singing.  After making sure that one of our teachers, Jim Hengeveld, wasn't playing the song for some reason and him making sure I wasn't doing the same, we realized that there actually was a Yellow-headed Blackbird singing in the marsh.  We quickly found the bird singing on the edge of the marsh and everyone was able to watch it through a scope.

Here are a couple of pics:
