We live in the Shenandoah Valley of VA, west of the Blue Ridge.  Recently, 
thousands of blackbirds (grackles, cowbirds, redwings) have been migrating 
NORTH at dusk.  Are they following the river which flows north until it 
meets the Potomac and then flows SE, or is there some kind of weird 
northward migration going on?  Thank you.
