495Re: [CVBirds] Rusty Blackbird
- Nov 29, 2001Central Valley Birders, County Birders, and yes CALBIRDSERS:
In response to Todd Easterla's e-mail below (sent around 6 PM, 29 November 2001), I have checked John Sterling's
county spreadsheet. Rusty Blackbird in Sutter County is missing from the file. This Rusty Blackbird is either a
first county record for Sutter County or it has simply been overlooked in the past, but there is one there now.
Including CALBIRDS on this since Rusty Blackbird is a CBRC species.
