Missed this tiny colony at the first stop two days prior. Site is north of the pond's trees, difficult to see. One lone male was perched on a branch by the road, as we stopped a few flew in leading us to discover the colony. Intermittently silent.
At the farm located south of the pond, at 38101 Gorman Post Rd. blackbirds were seen perching on a roadside tree. Approx 60 Brown-headed Cowbirds, 15 TRBB and 8 Yellow-headed.
Sex ratio m/f 7:3
