Anchorage Area Rarity – Red-winged Blackbird – January 28, 2016

Location:  Spenard – Anchorage, AK

First Seen:  January 28, 2016

Last Seen:  February 26, 2016

Discovered by:  First observed, positively IDed, reported, and photographed by Aaron Bowman.

Relative Rarity:  Seems just about “almost” annual in Anchorage.  About fourty’ish (40’ish) other records in Anchorage in the last 30 years or so.  Also observed in 1977, 1979, 1989, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015 (source is the eBird database).  Almost not worth including as a rarity at all?
