It was 64 degrees and sunny this morning at 6:30 a.m. and this was such a fun wake up call! As I toured around the lower gardens, I saw mourning doves, robins, swallows, house wrens, bunnies, yellow warblers, song sparrows, catbirds, etc. I didn't see the bluebirds, but I sure hope they are nesting in the box.
Down near the soccer field, I saw baby redwing blackbirds, a phoebe and lots of robins and some yellow warblers.
I was very excited to see that the pond had a beautiful black crowned night heron hanging out with the bullfrogs that scream and jump in the water as I approach. The wood thrush was everywhere and nowhere. I could hear it's beautiful song and just as I thought I might locate it, it would fly across the path to another part of the woods and start singing again.
