I’ve still got numerous Fox Sparrows. Between my yard, the old orchard, and the five minute walk down to the edge of the L-P Preserve there seem to be about a dozen, and I know that means there are more nearby in other directions. I’m watching some foraging under a band of spruces at this moment. In a normal spring I expect to have them around my place for 3 weeks or more.
A couple of Hermit Thrushes ate calling behind me. Here’s a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, over there is a Towhee. Now some Golden-crowned Kinglets. Oh, here come the Wood Ducks, skimming the tops of the spruces. Distant Field Sparrow song. A drumming Grouse! Hey, here’s my local Broad-winged Hawk, back on territory! -Geo > -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
