Date: 4/17/17 9:56 am From: MARLENECONDON--- via va-bird <va-bird...> Subject: [Va-bird] FOS dates for birds, western Albemarle; migrating Blue Jays; and NOTE
FOS R-b Grosbeak (male at feeder) 11:37 AM with more than 15 Blue Jays (they've been coming through the last couple of days)
FOS hummer 9:41 AM NOTE: I'm not going to put up a hummer feeder right away because the Tulip Poplars are already blooming (early!) and I don't see a hummer eating at my feeder until these trees stop producing nectar.

FOS Broad-winged Hawk (that's been nesting here for several years now), April 12
