Interestingly, no grackles, cowbirds here (at my feeder) in the southern tier.... but 50-60 Red-winged Blackbirds are pigging out at my feeder along with the 47!!! Bluejays this a.m. There appear to be a couple of females in the RWBL flock, altho one is definitely a juvl, streaky male.

We now have at least 96 Common Grackles at the feeders - mixed in with some cowbirds (including three females), Red-winged Blackbirds and starlings. Iíve never seen this many grackles in my life!
