To some birders, the first real song of spring is that of the Red-winged Blackbird, but for me spring hasn’t really arrived until I hear a Brown Creeper singing. So this morning I took a long hike around the North Reservoir in the Middlesex Fells and was rewarded with hearing Brown Creepers loudly singing at six different spots, as well as a seventh at nearby Long Pond. Yay Spring!
Walking was pretty good on hard-packed snow with only a couple icy spots.
