- Monday April 6 2009 - Violet-Green Swallows appeared this morning,
checking out potential nesting sites in the snag.
Probable Barn Swallows have been heard inside a nest in the eaves of the
house for over a week, but I have yet to see them flying around - odd!
Four Ospreys in a group circled over us this afternoon. Later, a single
Osprey joined some Turkey Vultures circling around, before heading north.
A Red-Breasted Sapsucker began drumming on metal signs and the ground
wire on a power pole - probably the same bird who did that last year?
Another surge in hummingbird numbers over the past two days; apparently
the Rufous are continuing to arrive.
Forgot to post a notice at the time, but about two weeks ago a couple of
probable Caspian Terns went by on their way north. Haven't seen the
flocks that usually go over us this time of year.
