WHIle out scouting potential photo locations this morning, I saw a Turkey Vulture perched on the slanting barn on Rt 79 (west of its intersection with Midline Road) where they have regularly been seen in the past. A couple of other TVs were flying nearby.
Other delights were Eastern Bluebird singing and a flyover Killdeer near Liddell Lab on Freese Road, lots House Finches, Northern Cardinals, Tufted Titmice singing in various spots. But no nesting White-breasted Nuthatches yet ;-(( Also looking for Downy Woodpeckers excavating and territorial Northern Mockingbirds although I am slightly delusional with spring fever to think that these activities are happening yet!
