I had some interesting birds from the yard yesterday. It started with a singing Field Sparrow as I was putting out the feeders. My earliest arrival date for it over the previous six springs was 6 April. During a break after lunch I watched the sky for a while, and the first bird I saw overhead was a Peregrine Falcon high up heading north. Soon after that a male Common Merganser flew over. Not unusual in the area of course but it was yard bird #143. Still awaiting my FOS Phoebe and Fox Sparrow.
