However, red-wing blackbirds have also been known to cause great agricultural damage due to their colonial roosting habits and taste for agricultural products.
After breeding season is over for red-wings, they will begin to gather in flocks of all male or all female birds. Northern populations will begin to migrate south to the southern United States and Central America as early as August.
