Brewer's Blackbird at Jenkins Creek - January 5, 2017

Visited Jenkins Creek today to look for the female Brewer's Blackbird, seen by other birders recently, and by me last winter.  This is a very unusual bird for Florida (usually found out West), but for some reason, this same female (identified by the white pigment in her eye), keeps returning to this area year after year since 2011.  Two years ago I saw her at Bayport, but today she is just a few miles away at Jenkins Creek.  No one would ever notice this amazing, and yet drab, bird as she blends with the boat-tailed grackles that are always seen there.
