Heard the FOTS Killdeer at Willow Run yesterday afternoon quickly followed by a second.
I, then, heard the first one this spring out at the barn in Ann Arbor.
Can it really be that spring is on the horizon?

I heard one last night Faye around midnight from up in the sky close here to the house. Not thinking Killdeer are perching birds, I can only assume it was passing through or maybe circling the area. It was great to hear.

Heard my first killdeer this morning as I was feeding the birds just at sunrise. Heard it twice. Heard it just now too and it reminded me about this morning.
(North of Dexter, lots of open fields all around.)
And had a grackle at our feeder yesterday. First ones of each bird for me this year. So glad to see and hear them. It really does make my heart stir.
