Thank you to everyone who has submitted Rusty Blackbird sightings to 
eBird this spring! Although today marks the close of the target Blitz 
dates in Connecticut, the Blitz isn’t over! In 2015, Rusty migration was 
later than usual through many states, and birders were reporting Rusty 
Blackbirds in some southern states in early April, and in northern 
states through early May. Even outside of our official Blitz window for 
Connecticut, we still need all of your Rusty Blackbird observations to 
help understand Rusty Blackbird migratory timing and habitat use. The 
international Blitz runs through June 15, so please continue to submit 
your observations to the “Rusty Blackbird Spring Migration Blitz” 
protocol on eBird until then. Thanks for supporting this international 
initiative to learn more about Rusty Blackbirds!
