The previous Rusty Bb reported was in primary, non-breeding plumage.  I don't think the plumage can change entirely in one day.  Today's Rusty Bb was in breeding plumage.  (Sibley notes a 3 month overlap of plumages.)

(Flo -- this 2nd bird was also on RWA land -- did you get my first report?)

From Arthur Shippee:
01/11/13 - Hamden, North Lake Dr -- 1 Rusty Blackbird (different bird);  1 Red-bellied Nuthatch
