Subject: [VTBIRD] Rusty Blackbird photo


>I am putting together a presentation on blood parasites of Rusty
> Blackbirds to give in April at a meeting of the International Rusty
> Blackbird Technical Working Group in Greenville, MI.  The Rusty
> Blackbird, as many know, has undergone a precipitous decline that some
> put at 70%.  This group is looking at possible causes and I agreed to
> examine for blood parasites.   For information,  60% of the birds I
> looked at were infected with one or more blood parasites.  Leucocytozoon
> was most commonly encountered.  This is a malaria like parasite
> transmitted by blackflies and "no-see-ums".

> I would like to use a photograph of Rusty Blackbird to embellish the
> poster.  Do any of you have a photograph(s) that you could send me
> digitally (.tif or .jpg) for me to use?  I can not afford to pay for the
> image but I would, of course, give credit to the photographer.
> Ideally, I would like an adult male and female.
