Tweets – A gorgeous day today, but it started out FRIGID – it was 28 degrees when we started, though it s-l-o-w-l-y warmed to about 47. Beautiful sun too, though some fog pre-dawn. It was pretty birdy, but we’re still mostly having winter birds. Spring always takes so long to get here, after teasing us with the first arrivals.


Cackling Goose Some distant fly-by flocks
Wood Duck Pair at Rowing Club south pond
American Wigeon At least 4 below weir
Greater Scaup 2 in slough
Green Heron On far side of slough near beaver lodge
Bald Eagle Seen OFTEN – Had to be more than 3 birds
N. Saw-whet Owl Heard pre-dawn near east end of boardwalk
Rufous Hummingbird Female seen, as well as several males
-All 5 Woodpeckers - Finally, a pair of HAIRYs, and prob. 2 Pileated
- swallows- Only Tree and Violet-green, but 80-100 total

For the day, “only” 62 species. Say’s Phoebe and Northern Shrike were NOT seen today, though both were seen in the last week.

HAIRY WOODPECKER was our only year bird, to bring our year list to 87 species, if I count correctly.
