I haven't posted anything in a long time. Partly because life gets in the way sometimes and partly because this winter was pretty slow as far as my birding goes.
After a record cold start to April and a ridiculous amount of snow, the temps are rising and the birds are finally showing up though some are a bit behind schedule.
I got out this afternoon to see what water had opened up and to see what was present. I wasn't disappointed.
Other species included Yellow-headed Blackbird, Sora, Greater White-fronted Geese, Ring-necked Ducks, Pied billed Grebes and American Widgeon and several other expected species. With the temps still predicted to hit into the 70s this weekend I suspect birds will continue to push north as more water opens up.
All the more reason to go outside and keep looking up.
