Here's our weekly Bird News from Skyler Abell:

Icterids, or the blackbird family, will flock together in the Tennessee Valley during the winter. These flocks may consist of Common Grackle (pictured), Red-winged Blackbird, Brown-headed Cowbird, Brewer's Blackbird and the Rusty Blackbird. The latter 2 species are here during the winter only, whereas the other 3 species are here year round. Eastern Meadowlarks are in the same family, but do not flock with the others and remain in the fields year round. Orchard and Baltimore Orioles are also part of the blackbird family but they are only here during breeding season and migration. Some people may get frustrated with these flocks when their feeders get overrun with them; however, it's important to remember that they are all protected under the Migratory Bird Act and therefore it is illegal to harm or harass them at any time. The best suggestion for them leaving is to empty your feeders for a few days and then fill them back up. European Starlings can be in flocks of over a thousand, but they are neither blackbirds, nor are they under any federal protection due to being an introduced species.

Our resident birding expert and enthusiast, Skyler Abel, will be sharing info on our feathered friends: Here is his first post:

Over 150 species are reported/observed in the Tennessee Valley each winter. Having feeders filled is a great way to find many of them, but not all birds are attracted to feeders. This time of the year the fields, rivers, lakes and dams become filled with over-wintering bird species. They range from the giant American White Pelican (pictured) at the dams, to the tiny Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets in the bushes. Waterfowl including almost 20 duck species and 4 goose species can easily be found here. The fields will have wintering birds of prey like the Merlin (Falcon), Northern Harrier (Hawk), and the Sharp-shinned Hawk, as well as our year-round resident raptors, which can make for quite a show when one gets near another. Keep feeders full, but also grab a scope, binoculars, or a camera and go explore some areas.
