Observation details

After checking out the east side of Mill Pond I decided to cross the street and check out the creek. After a few minutes not seeing anything, these 14 Rusty Blackbirds flew in from the NW and perched in a tree above us @ 2:05 p.m.. It was hard for good pictures as they were perched behind multiple tree branches. Eleven of the fourteen were seen well with my bins. After I snapped a few pics they all flew south.
