Rusty Blackbird, Carpinteria, SBCO, 2013-02-18
- [This one is just for the record and can not be chased.]
Yesterday Monday morning Maggie Sherriffs and I found this male Rusty Blackbird in Carpinteria, Santa Barbara County:
Suggestions about the age of this bird are welcome.
Unlike your usual SBCO Rusty Blackbird it was not part of a flock of Brewer's BBs at a COSTCO parking lot, but instead it was all by itself digging into pinecones to feed on seeds or insects.
This bird is on private property and can not be chased.
