Subject: [Maine-birds] FOY Rusty Blackbird, Biddeford
Just had a gorgeous male Rusty Blackbird patrolling the ground near my
feeders. He called incessantly (low "chuck" notes and high-pitched
playground-swing squeals). He did not show any interest in the feeders
themselves and only examined the snow-covered ground from several feet
away. His main interest was the water ditch in my backyard... he waded
through the shallow water, turning over wet leaves, and pecking at small
snail shells now and again.

Feeling very lucky to check off this beautiful migrant as a yard bird!
