Staging Blackbirds

My backyard is very interesting as about 50 Redwing Blackbirds noisely wait (stage) out the right conditions (?) and then leave. I predict this group of birds will be gone (migrating) by riday. They have not been here this past summer but got here about 3 days ago. While watching the Redwings about 10 magpies mugged a Swainson’s Hawk. The hawk flew into a cottonwood to wait out the noisy magpies that were mugging it.
