On Route 78 just east of Campbell Bay Road I had at least 2,000
Red-winged Blackbirds today at around 3pm-there may have been hundreds
more, but they were in trees close and far, in the reeds, flushing and
diving, on both sides of the road; quite an ever changing spectacle and
one heck of a deafening serenade! Their ballooning epaulets looked like
miniature orange jellyfish on the tops of the reeds. Stunning.
