Tuesday evening I had a Wilson's Snipe and an American Woodcock calling and displaying near my home. While mowing today, I spooked the snipe and it flew away from me. It was hanging out in a low spot of tall grass that still has standing water. There was a pair displaying courtship behavior in that spot a couple of years ago, but I never located a nest or saw young ones.
Two White-crowned Sparrows are still frequenting the feeder area. A Northern Oriole and Warbling Vireo are singing all day, Eastern Meadowlarks are singing in the field, and we're up to at least three Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at the feeders.
