Rusty Blackbird Fact Sheet

Posted on Feb 24, 2015

Are you a leader of an Audubon chapter, nature center, land trust or other area where the public can enjoy birds and wildlife? If so, I am hoping you would be so kind as to distribute and/or post the below two-page informational document about the Rusty Blackbird and the Rusty Blackbird International Working Group’s upcoming Spring Migration Blitz for your visitors. You can also download it here.

 

I am the statewide Connecticut coordinator for the Rusty Blackbird Spring Migration Blitz, running from March through mid-June across the continent and focused in Connecticut from mid-March through April. An article with the full overview of the effort to save the fastest declining once-common landbird in North America is here: http://rtpi.org/rusty-blackbird-blitz-2015/
