From Larry Bausher:
12/12/13 - New Haven, Edgewood Park, 10:30-11:30 AM. Huge flock of
about 80 Rusty Blackbirds seen at various locations between Edgewood
Ave and Whalley Ave. Did not see any grackles, Redwing Blackbirds,
Starlings, or Brown-headed Cowbirds. All identified birds, about
30-40 altogether, were clearly Rusty Blackbirds, with their rusty
winter plumage showing nicely in bright sun. On the basis of not
seeing any other blackbirds in the flock, particularly redwings,
which are frequently seen here, I estimate a total of 80 altogether.
Full report on ebird.
Also, a Cooper’s Hawk perched nicely on a tree next to Whalley Ave.
Did not see the Red-headed Woodpecker at Bradley & Lincoln from
