Alvaro Jaramillo will be discussing the Icteridae, the family that includes blackbirds, cowbirds, grackles, and many colorful species such as the orioles and meadowlarks, as well as the amazing oropendolas of the tropics.

Icterids are found only in the Americas, and they are some our most interesting land birds; their behavior, mating strategies, and breeding biology are more diverse than any other group of songbirds in our continent.

Join us as Alvaro leads us through the fascinating world of the New World Blackbirds.
