There was flock of at least 150 blackbirds in Newfield ~7:00 this morning. I saw Grackles and Starlings, and maybe heard a few Red-Winged Blackbirds in the mix.

It was like a scene from "The Birds." The lawn was black with birds. Then about 09:00 a smaller group of several dozen came through. Yesterday, Wed, was when we actually got 6 RWB instead of just one or two. The fields are alive with the sounds of RWB.
