We were about to go out and put warm water in the bubbler and fill feeders. I looked out to see a Rusty Blackbird grab an American Goldfinch as it flew to the area. It killed it and took it into the basin area and proceeded to eat it.
I was stunned. I had never heard of this behavior with the Rusties. Other birds came in, two partook though one may have been the initial bird.
