Our Rusty Blackbird flock has had a slower than usual start this winter.  We've had only 25-30 for the last month.  Several days ago it grew to about 40 and today bloomed to 85-90 birds. They are so jumpy that they often all take off before the last one has landed.  My best way to count them is to photograph them and then count the birds in the image.  Nice to have them back!
