Dickcissel Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: These guys are very common around here in the summer, even in areas that are mostly corn and soybeans.  If you drive on a summer's day with your windows down, you'll often hear them as they sing from telephone wires or fence posts. Given their love of high perches, and given the preponderance of unnatural perches here, such as telephone poles and fences, it's nice to get a shot like the one below, of a bird on a natural perch. Photo taken in June 2006, in Minnehaha County, South Dakota
