2020 Rusty Blackbird Breeding Season

Breeding Rusty Blackbirds were found at 40 sites in 2020 with confirmed fledging from 17 nests. Researchers continue to follow Rusty Blackbirds with nanotags including the female pictured above that was detected once during fall migration and spent nine days in the vicinity of a Motus receiving station on the way back north. She built her nest this year less than 200 ft. from her 2019 nest site.
