Today I saw a flock of 68 Rusty Blackbirds at Amnicola Marsh in Hamilton county. Green-winged Teal, Ring-necked Duck, Hooded Merganser, Bufflehead, Gadwall, Mallard, Northern Shoveler, and Canada Goose were also at the marsh. About 20 Sandhill Cranes were calling as they flew south near Sims-Harris Rd. in Ooltewah, Hamilton county. Thirty Pine Siskins made a quick stop (two minutes) at my feeders today in Marion county. They are so nomadic and frightened. The flock seems to be constantly moving across the mountain. I hear them daily, but the last time the flock visited my feeders was about a month ago ( 45 second stop). Sweetgum tree balls seem to be their favorite.
