This morning, for the first time since last June, there was almost constant birdsong during my walk.
Cardinals were leading the songsters:
Red-winged Blackbirds, newly arrived, were also vocal:
In 3rd place were American Tree Sparrows. Around the time that Red-winged Blackbirds arrive, Tree Sparrows start thinking about heading northward to their tundra breeding grounds.
A few Gulls called from the skies above:
The next singers, due any day, should be the Song Sparrows.
Other birds today:
Here are some sights from my July 2020 walk here:
Have you seen these Miles? Well worth the fare.
It's a year almost that I have not seen her: Oh, last summer green things were greener, Brambles fewer, the blue sky bluer. It's surely summer, for there's a swallow: Come one swallow, his mate will follow, The bird race quicken and wheel and thicken. Oh happy swallow whose mate will follow O'er height, o'er hollow! I'd be a swallow, To build this weather one nest together. - Christina Rossetti
