Brewer's/Rusty - SW MI 3/18

Recommended Posts

I know very little about this ID, but something here just screams Rusty at me. I've seen countless Brewer's, and this bird would stick out in a flock of BRBL for some reason I can't seem figure out.

Environment? I've only seen Rusty foraging at the edge of water or roosting near a water body.

Otherwise a tough ID as in "very glossy overall" or :somewhat glossy overall" 🙂.

Farm field; mixed flock of RWBL, COGR, RUBL, and EUST…and a Robin.  Farm fields around here typically get foraging mixed blackbird flocks in them, during the early spring.  It might be too early for BRBL though.  Some records on the bar charts for Michigan, but April is the better month.
