I visited several places looking for new arrivals, yesterday. At Willow Lake, near Raphine, there were 2 Green Herons and 4 Pied-billed Grebes plus the usual Canada Geese and swallows. Nearby at McCormick's Farm, there were a few Ruby-crowned Kinglets still here and there were 5 Blue-winged Teal on the back pond. Along River Rd, south of Buena Vista, I found 3 Yellow-throated Warblers singing and foraging in the sycamores along the Maury River. The Cliff Swallows have returned and are busy repairing their nests. We now have a large colony of CLSW under the Maury River bridge in Glasgow. I would guess there are 50 nests.
I've posted some photos from yesterday on my Flickr site, if you are interested.
