Last night I saw Sir Paul McCartney play at the Verizon Center in DC. It was incredible, as I expected.

A video was projected behind him during the performance, which prominently featured birds. Of course, my eBird mind started to work, and I could barely pay attention to the song because of my dumb brain working through IDs. Not much to go on -- mostly rock pigeons and backlit blackbird sps -- but I wonder if the Eurasian blackbird at the end is a first DC record?
Here's my checklist for the song:
Thanks for the tunes, Macca.
