Yesterday i had great luck finding some of the birds found during the CBC meeting. Today, not so much.
i saw a large flock of black-colored birds between Engelhard and Airport Rd. (NE of Engelhard) in a big field off Hwy. 264. i couldn't find a Yellow-headed or a Rusty Blackbird; only found Common Grackles, Red-winged Blackbirds, Eurasian Starling, and Brown-headed Cowbirds.i could not find a Brewer's Blackbird on Gum Swamp Rd. despite the large flock of black-colored birds there. Eurasian Wigeons had been reported at several places along wild life drive, but i couldn't find any at Lake Mattamuskeet. i was o fer today. Lots of great birds though!
