A locally rare bird was located, on April 1, 2020. Brewer’s Blackbirds, like the one found by Bruce Dralle, have only a 0.9% frequency in Hamilton County, according to eBird.
The Brewer’s Blackbird was observed in a field behind a business located at 817 Pineville Rd.
Several additional people were able to observe it before a motorist who was in the area spooked the bird. It flew south, and has not been relocated.
