Ruth Stewart and I encountered a flock of blackbirds late in the afternoon and cannot differentiate them from starlings or red-winged blackbirds. Photos are attached to the checklist below if you care to take a look and offer your suggestions. None that we could spot had yellow beaks yet to me the beak shows more like a starling than red-ing. Juvenile starlings do have black beaks? Another bird puzzle to figure out!
