Rusty Blackbird?

Recommended Posts

Flocks or “clouds” of Rusty Blackbirds have been spotted in my Charleston, SC area neighborhood recently. Heard a cacophony of birds early this morning, went out and took some very mediocre photos. Wondering if these are Rusties. Hope so because this would be a lifer for me!

Certainly grackles. 

Oh, I see what I did. I thought the first photo was distorting the bill to make it look longer, so I thought it was only the "solid" part. My bad @cccougar

Hopefully you'll get those Rusties soon!
