This morning in West Swanton at the corner of Church Rd and Rt 78, a very
noisy flock of about 350 Red-winged Blackbirds, with at least 10 Common
Grackles, 5 European Starlings, and a female Brow-headed Cowbird mixed in.
As I watched the blackbirds, a FOY (for me) Turkey Vulture flew over.

Further down Church Rd, a male Northern Harrier flew across the road in
front of my car.

Flocks of Canada Geese were seen in the area flying north (mostly)
throughout the morning.  Don't know where they'll find open water.
