Don’t forget that today wraps up the 2011 Rusty Blackbird Blitz. I actually found a dozen birds yesterday at the typical wet wooded habitat they favor, a site at the edge of a local marsh where they have been seen in years past. They are such skulkers, I hope there were more there. Today I will check a location where I observed then on the Floyd Co. CBC – a wet grassy area bordering open pasture – in company with hundreds of other blackbirds of various species. I’ll also look at a cattle yard where they’ve also frequently been seen in the past.

So don’t limit your thinking about where to look, and do devote a little birding time for a worthy purpose, gathering data on this declining species.

Your findings can be reported at eBird, and there is a special link on the “Date and effort” page for this purpose.
