For this morning's bird walk, we had a flock of about a dozen rusty blackbirds near Sherwood Platform, first foraging low by one of the small ponds, then gathering in one of the trees. Also there were some yellow-rumped warblers and ruby-crowned kinglets, and many white-throated sparrows

We just had 6 RUSTY BLACKBIRDS checking our feeder area. I think the damned MOURNING DOVES intimidated them, and also probably had eaten all the seed on the ground. The blackbirds left after a minute. 2 obvious females, 2 obvious males; the other 2 a cross plumage between the male and female.

Today, I saw 2 RUSTY BLACKBIRDS at the bend of Sapsucker Woods Rd, near the Lab's bird feeding garden -- apparently they were seen yesterday as well. Also in that area was a flock of at least 50 HOUSE FINCHES (the largest flock I have seen in several years), and about 10 WAXWINGS -- all Cedars.
