Rusty Blackbird (50)

Yesterday, as my second class was about to begin the activity of dissecting Owl 
Pellets, a flock of Rusty Blackbirds suddenly descended to the bottom of the 
school bird feeders. The class frenzied to the windows to get a better look. As 
a result, the flock instantly took flight with all the commotion.  "Hurry guys, 
there are a Bunch of Rusty Blalckbirds out there and I need help in counting 
them," was a whole lot more fun than taking orderly and controlledviewing turns 
at the window. A few Grackles and Am. Robins were mixed in..
