Great-horned Owl at Forty Niner
A last minute decision to check Woodland road was fortuitous. While looking for a previously reported American Crow, Mark spotted a female Rusty Blackbird in a mixed blackbird flock. The dark eye patch, pale eye, gray rump and thinner more decurved bill separate this from Brewer's Blackbird. I managed to obtain a few shots, though distance was an issue. I believe that this is the second Pima county record. A state bird for me!
