Flock of Rusty Blackbirds

Recommended Posts

This past Wednesday (11-22-2017), I was sitting on my back porch (in East Central Alabama)  and saw a flock of birds land and start walking towards my feeders.   I took a better look with my binoculars and realized it was an entire flock of Rusty Blackbirds!   There were at least 25-30 of them and not a black one in the bunch.  Yes, they were ALL Rusty Blackbirds!  I have only seen one Rusty Blackbird in my life a few years ago, so this was thrilling to say the least.   And of course, I didn't have my camera with me.   I keep hoping they will come back.

Is this a rare thing?  Has anyone else ever seen an entire flock of Rusty Blackbirds before?
