Blackbirds arriving- 2/16


There were hundreds of blackbirds in the flooded fields at Burger’s Farm on Niska Isle this morning. At least 400 Red-winged Blackbirds, six Common Grackles, and two calling Rusty Blackbirds. Canada Geese and dozens of Mallards also present. Hungry robins were eating the sumac bobs along the bike path. I also watched a starling do a spot-on imitation of an Eastern Meadowlark’s “spring-is-here” song.
