The weather continues to be unbelievable here in Minnesota and is making Saturday's banding session look more like a day in May than March. We may see migrants in our nets that we wouldn't expect until next month. Last night I heard a flock of Tundra Swans flying over my house at about 11:15 pm. They were so loud I could hear them even with all the windows closed.
If anyone is around on Saturday we are holding our monthly bird banding session at the Lowry Nature Center in Carver Park Reserve from 9-noon. We would love to have folks come out and see some birds up close. Don't worry, the rain should hold off until we're done. For directions to the park please check the Three Rivers Park District website.
