Birds of a Feather

March first. Soon I'll start seeing the Spring Returns. One of the great flocks will be the Blackbirds: Starlings, Grackles, Red-winged Blackbirds, Brown-headed Cowbirds. Icterids all -- excepting the imposter starlings -- they always travel together. When they arrive, Spring cannot be far behind. Do they know that they are related? How?
