2/6 - Bloomfield - Reservoir 3
While parked along the access road, a massive movement of blackbirds started passing to the north in an easterly direction. My estimate is 50,000, mostly Common Grackles outnumbering other blackbirds 4 to 1. The movement continued non-stop from 4:15 to 4:30. Could they have been pushed up by the big storm to our south?
