Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Spring walks - 3/29 & 28 - Durand-Eastman & Webster Park
     A couple of relatively short walks in parks near lakeshore. Some signs of spring in moving birds and spring arrivals. Yesterday at Durand both Winter Wren and a Fox Sparrow were singing in the small valley west of the barricade at the end of Wisner Road.    Day before at Webster Park we had a nice flock of Tree Swallows moving overhead. None down by the nest boxes yet; good thing.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>
