Made a quick stop at Badger Creek on the way home from work this afternoon to check for migrants, and I was disappointed. YELLOW RUMPED WARBLERS were very everywhere, also had PALM, ORANGE CROWNED, and a couple of gorgeous YELLOW WARBLERS! I was happy to see my FOY GRAY CATBIRD, along with a couple of WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS- one singing a thin song. The most exciting find was along the gravel road, a DICKCISSEL hanging on to a branch for dear life in the wind, I watched him for a few minutes, two others joined him and off they went. SPRING!
