Subject: [Maine-birds] Song Sparrow in York!
Well this is a first. Heard, then went and confirmed with the binocs, a
singing song sparrow at the Beacon St. wetland adjacent to Long Sands beach
in York, Maine this morning.

Other avifauna included:
-Red-winged blackbirds (4)
-Common Grackles (3)
-Purple Finches (1-2)
-Black Capped chickadees (2)
-House Sparrows (c. 10)
-European Starling (5)
-Ring-billed gulls (8)

We keep a spring birds arrival list here at White Pine Programs -and, over
the course of the last 12 years, our earliest SOSP was March 2nd in 2013.
This is our earliest on record.

Happy "spring" birding,
