Welcome to Opening Day of the Rusty Blackbird Spring Migration Blitz! The Blitz will track Rusties on their northward migration from the southeastern U.S. up through Canada and into Alaska. Birders from 38 U.S. states, 9 Canadian provinces, and 3 Canadian territories will search for this elusive songbird from early March through mid-June. Each state/province has target survey dates that encompass peak migration in that region. Want to get involved in an international initiative to conserve a vulnerable songbird? It’s easy- learn how you can help! Happy Birding!
