We had our first swallows of the year: TREE and VIOLET-GREEN, and repeats (and repeats/repeats/repeats) of HUTTON'S VIREOS singing in about the same area as last month. We found a RED-TAILED HAWK on the nest at Hodge Lake. This nest was partially built two years ago, not used, and not used last year. The nest had definitely been refurbished: much larger. When first spotted, two hawks were at nest. We also saw two COMMON RAVENS on the road past Hodge Lake, and later, one was carrying a branch to what may turn out to be nest tree (first raven nest at Eagles Pride GC).
