Yesterday I commented about the size of the Common Grackle flock and how I couldn’t get close enough to it to look over each and every bird for the stray Rusty Blackbird. Well, today I didn’t see a single grackle, but I did see a single adult male Rusty Blackbird! Number 146 for me and number 164 for the preserve! What a beautiful bird! I could stand to see them more often.
Again it was unseasonably warm. Starting out at 52 and ending around 60! Despite the warm spring like weather I still see very few people at the preserve, which is fine by me. I like having the place to myself.
