Potential Habitat

Rusty Blackbirds can be found across a variety of habitats during migration, and they are often (but not always) associated with shallow water, such as in flooded forests or along the edges of beaver flowages, creeks, or ponds.  Our optional Rusty Blackbird Blitz 2014 datasheet lists some of the most common Rusty Blackbird habitats. Here are some photos of common Rusty Blackbird habitat types.
