1) Rusty Bb's behind: ebird report below: this flock moves around & seems to wax & wane some. Small groups float around, too. Also some numbers of House Finch & Goldfinch, & a few others.
From Arthur Shippee:
01/24 - Hamden: North Lake Dr. -- below our feeders, 60+ Rusty Blackbirds, mixed sex & plumage.
2) Pileated, F, wandering about RWA kettle hole between Mather & North Lake, just north of Servoss (RWA, not Hamden Land Trust). About 100 yards from previously reported sighting. On this cycle of upper Lake Whitney, I also saw 2 Red-tailed Hawks & 1 M. Robin -- pretty quiet! Well, it was 19°.

> Rusty Blackbird 60 Or more. Mixed, as usual. Late morning, a small group, 6-7; 11:19: 35 or more, ditto 12:20. 12:39: small group, ca. 7. Then this big group. It would *seem* that the bigger group waxes & wanes some: I don't think there were 60 close by when I counted 35 -- although perhaps out of sight 100 yards either way. "...please add comments and check 'Complete'.": comments.
> House Finch X 5-6 or more, mixed
> American Goldfinch X 8 or more.
