Numbers are increasing here.
Gobs (yes gobs) of Ruby-crowned Kinglets
A few Yellow-rumped Warblers
Wood Ducks outside my window in the trees (first for this)
Fox Sparrow (1)
Common Loon (1) ( I think they nested on the lake last year)
Great Horned Owl
Hermit Thrush (1)
Many Juncos still
Many goldfinches still
Various normal woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, pheasants, etc.
At least 2 different soaring raptors (hard to ID from my office window)
Limited water birds - Buffleheads, Scaup, scattered mergansers, and what appeared to be at quite a distance - a Redhead Duck.
Just set up my water feature yesterday so I am expecting great things with this early spring. A pair of Mallards seem to be eyeing the area around my upper pond as a potential nesting site. Massive floating mats of down feathers are dancing in the wind. Don't think thats gonna work with yard work coming up.
