I was greeted by tree swallows who were dipping and diving and who had already staked out their nest boxes for the season. Yellow warblers were singing everywhere and courting each other. It was such a cheerful scene and I must say I was really happy to be back!
High in the oaks were some blue-gray gnatcatchers making their little buzzy noises and flitting about. I could hear an eastern phoebe calling from the woods. Chipping sparrows chipped away. A couple of house wrens were clearly back as evidenced by their bubbling babble!
