I'm passing this along from a colleague at the Audubon Society of New Hampshire about a Rusty Blackbird re-sighting project. Also, a good time to remind that it is always good to eBird any Rusty Blackbirds you come across.
Seeing Rusty Blackbirds? Take a closer look!
If you have the good fortune to encounter Rusty Blackbirds this winter, please check their legs for bands. Researchers from the International Rusty Blackbird Working Group have been banding adults and nestlings in breeding areas of northern New Hampshire since 2009. Individuals may have a standard aluminum band only or an aluminum band and one or more color bands. Even if you are unable to distinguish colors or read numbers, the mere observation of banded birds is very helpful. Please send information including date, details of location, and observed bands to Carol Foss at cfoss at nhaudubon.org .
