Subject: [obol] Baby birds galore and willow flycatcher
I counted 22 ducklings following a female wood duck on our pond today. I have my doubts as to whether they are all hers. At least once In past years we had hooded mergansers lay eggs in the wood duck box. They were around earlier this spring, but I haven’t seen them in a while. We are also seeing lots of baby hummingbirds (rufous and Anna’s) and robins. Our first willow flycatchers arrived here three days ago. By my records, that’s about a week earlier than usual.
