3/6/18 While counting for Project Feeder Watch, noticed one Rusty Blackbird amongst 130 Red-winged Blackbirds, 14 Common Grackles, 16 Brown-headed Cowbirds & 4 European Starlings in my feeding area. This bird was mostly black with some rusty feathers on its back (and pale eye like the grackles). A flock of 15 Cedar Waxwings joined 3 American Robins, eating Mountain Ash berries.
