I got a late start today at Garret Mountain, but it was worthwhile. Highlights included: Pileated woodpeckers (nest building; perhaps the same birds Marc Chelemer found earlier this week), e. phoebes, barn swallow, tree swallows, rough-winged swallows, golden-crowned kinglets, blue-gray gnatcatcher, hermit thrush, rusty blackbird, e. towhee, chipping sparrows.
The surprise of the day was an American wigeon on Barbour's Pond; I don't remember seeing one there before. Perhaps the dredging of the pond has made it more suitable for this species. It was nice to see a minor wave of spring migrants, as well as the sun, after another cool, dark morning!
