I checked the date when he (SOSP) had returned in 2008 and the date was March 17. So he is late by a week this year! Wonder what delayed his arrival. I think last year (2009) it was something like April 2 but will check it out. Meena From: bounce-5475443-3493...@list.cornell.edu

I saw my FOS pied billed grebes at Montezuma across from Benning Marsh at just before 10:00 am today. The bald eagles at Mud Lock are still not on the nest. I understand that this is a new female since she doesn't have any tags. They are still bringing back nesting materials and mating,

Ooops, too busy to post this yesterday, but a/the American Kestrel pair has arrived on Mt Pleasant as of Wednesday afternoon. While I was on my afternoon walk, I was thinking about how it must be time for them to return by now, when a falcon-winged bird flew across the road in front of me. My
