Subject: Re: [LABIRD-L] singing FOS in Folsom
Since I'm laid off of my part-time job it is giving me the opportunity to
be home to observe the Prothonotary Warbler males check out of all
of the nest boxes I have up for when they find a female mate. I get to
watch the Blue Birds selecting a box to nest and all the actions they
go through. The Wood Ducks are laying eggs in my two duck boxes, the
Parulas are singing, the Chickadees are looking for nesting places
as well as the Tufted Titmice and Cardinals. The Ruby-throated Hummers are
hitting the hummingbird feeders and looking for mates. Now
I'm just waiting at home for other migrants to show up.
