A brief, afternoon walk on a very pleasant day to loosen up the old frame a
bit and see what's new. Surprisingly, heard no wrens but, in a bit, saw my
first Palm Warbler (they suddenly seem to be everywhere). Shortly
afterwards, a Myrtle Warbler didn't seem eager to depart. Heard several
Field Sparrows singing; those, some Songs & a few Whitethroat made a nice
trio, tho' the other day, also saw the Swamp & Savannah as well.

From what I've observed over the winter, both a few Robins (now everywhere)
and Bluebirds, a few today, have over-wintered. There were a number of the
usual species, plus a singing Redwing, another first of the season. When I
espied a small, bright reddish-brown object across the field, the bins
revealed not a fox, but a newly/recently emerged groundhog ! Another nice
