Today I noticed a large flock (50 count) of what turned out to be (IMO) female Red-winged Blackbirds resting in the tops of some trees in my yard. They were there over an hour. After close examination, I decided they were female Red-wings. I do not member seeing such a large group of females only. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
The past few weeks we have noticed 6 Killdeer, several Grackles, many Am. Robins, and a few Red-winged Blackbirds on our farm.
On Tuesday I kept a list of birds spotted from the farm into Parsons and back with a trip to Neosho State Fishing Lake (Lake McKinley) over the noon hour and had 5 species of ducks and just over 40 species so things seem to be picking up around SEK after what seemed to me to be a slow winter.
