Saw the male RUSTY BLACKBIRD this morning at Crescent Lake, south of Monroe. The area was very birdy. Also saw a male SLATE-COLORED JUNCO and male CASSIAR JUNCO as well as a WHITE-THROATED SPARROW.

The male, nonbreeding Rusty Blackbird was present at about 3 pm today. We first saw it in a tree across the creek from the NW corner of the 2nd (westernmost) field accessed from the north parking lot. It flew toward us and landed in a tree on the near side of the creek where we had good looks before it flew higher into nearby trees. Although this bird did not sing, it made clucking and chucking noises. It had a rusty color on its forehead, cap and back, as seen in previously posted photos.
