Last night at Sandy point in west haven Virginia Parker and I had the Yellow-headed Blackbird. It flew in low over the harbor by itself at dusk, into the marsh to roost. Came from the north/northeast, so perhaps was foraging somewhere on the other side of the harbor. Also present were a Sora, 2 Bonaparte's Gulls, 5 species of tern (Common, Least, Roseate, Forster's, Black), and a juv Red Knot.
