Tweets – The weather was decent enough – overcast, and just a smidgen of mist, if that. Not cold, not windy. But the birds were a bit scarce today, though some of them were beginning to show signs of spring thoughts.


- 9 species of duck -
Horned Grebe 2 out pretty far on lake
Great Blue Heron 11 seen on nests or immediately adjacent
Green Heron 1 at beaver lodge again
Red-tailed Hawk Rebuilding nest on odd-snag
Western Screech-Owl 2 heard, south of East Meadow, very early
Red-breasted Sapsucker 1 near windmill
Northern Flicker 1 drumming, some calling a variety of calls
Bewick’s Wren Singing
Song Sparrow Many singing
Red-winged Blackbird Okalee songs

We also had two RACCOONS on the far side of the slough, our first since November, 2015.

For the day, 54 species. Nothing new for the year.
