Rusty Blackbird - Gill, Franklin Co., MA. November 29th & 30th, 2010. Images taken using Panasonic Lumix DMC-F27 through the basement window.
Finally got the yard's feeders up and running again after a couple of weeks hiatus since returning from Israel. After a slow start on Saturday, activity and diversity picked up today (Monday) highlighted by the unexpected appearance of a Rusty Blackbird in late afternoon.
NB. The Rusty Blackbird was again present up to about noon on Nov 30th but not thereafter.
Also, a quick run down to Turner's Falls power canal once again produced the continuing Cackling Goose but also an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull, both of which had been seen the previous day by Scott Surner, along with two Kumlien's Iceland Gulls.
