I was watching a turkey vulture catching thermals tonight when a few swirling birds beside it caught my eye; swallows. It appeared to be tree swallows, although they were so far off it was hard to see much more than a flash of indigo and white breasts. About 14 of them were working the area. Wonderful to see.
The rain has enthused the birds generally. Seen and/or heard, in addition to the swallows, today:
Brown creeper; goldfinch; purple finch; dark-eyed juncos; song sparrow; American tree sparrow; Eastern phoebe; brown creeper; RW blackbird, American robin, American crow; downy woodpecker; yellow-bellied sapsucker; hairy woodpecker; pileated woodpecker; turkey vulture; mourning doves (pair seem to be taking up home in our yard); common mergansers, buffleheads, mallards, Canada geese. A barred owl was calling last night. The fox sparrows visiting last week have moved on.
Spring peepers and woodfrogs have been in full chorus in the wetland behind the house. Although winter had its warm periods, it's certainly welcome to have the warmth and the birds showing up.
