Rusty vs Brewer's Blackbird, Monte Rio, Sonoma, California 10/17/21


Recommended Posts

I wonder what you all think about this bird. I briefly saw it for a few seconds before it got flushed by a car, and I didn't have any views of it through bins. I only had time to take these three out of focus photos. When I checked the photos on the back of my camera, I decided that it was just an immature male Brewer's Blackbird. Now I'm not so sure. Rusty Blackbird is extremely rare out west, ebird only shows 1 record for Sonoma county, and it's birded pretty hard.
