Today (39degF- 45degF) was a long-johns, gloves, and bundled up day for all of us except the kilt-togged Jon A! No precip, but a total 0 UV-ray, cloudy sky. The nine of us at JBLM Eagles Pride GC enjoyed a lot of Spring song, with YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS (16), PACIFIC WRENS (13), HUTTON'S VIREOS (4), and VARIED THRUSHES (18) letting us know Winter was close to being over, at least according to the calendar. Other highlights included 29 MOURNING DOVES (26 in one tree!), and FOY TREE SWALLOWS (3).

The only mammals were 4 black-tailed deer. Misses included raptors, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and Zonotrichia sparrows.

The JBLM Eagles Pride GC birders meet the third Thursday of each month at 8:00AM. Starting point is Bldg # 1514, Driving Range Tee, Eagles Pride Golf Course, I-5 Exit 116, Mounts Road Exit. Upcoming walks include the following:

* April 21

* May 19

* June 16

Anyone is welcome to join us!
