This afternoon at Water Treatment Rd in Marana, ( off N. Luckett) There was a field being harrowed which attracted a crowd:
Easily 2,000 Red-winged Blackbirds, 10,000 Yellow-headed Blackbirds, 17 Common Ravens, 6 Red-tailed Hawks and 2 Crested Cara Caras. In adjacent fallow areas: 30 Western Meadowlarks, 2 Northern Harriers, a Prairie Falcon flyover, 3 American Kestrels, a Merlin, 80-100 Mourning Doves, 1 Vesper Sparrow, 30 White-crowned Sparrows, 15 Savannah Sparrows, about 60-70 other LBJ Sparrows and 30 House Finches.
The Cara Caras took off which briefly caused a murmuration of the blackbirds. Quite a show!
