I had "my" LA Waterthrush this morning on my little creek at home in Upper Mt. Bethel Township. I've had one there ever since I began birding as a kid, so I'm not sure how many generations that might be. I always use that as my real sign of spring almost here, other than the Wood Frogs and Spring Peepers starting to sing. Even though the last two years has had March being rather wintry, these things are following the same schedule.
I took for granted the Phoebe who showed up on Good Friday (also a regular on the same clothesline every year), and almost overlooked the first Osprey on Bangor Vein Road at the bridge this Thursday, the 5th of April. I guess he's checking out this area since Minsi is going to be pretty dry this year.
