While it was pretty quiet along the shore of Rapids Lake this morning, I did relocate the Swamp Sparrow from last week. I also found(relocated?) 3 Yellow-rumped Warbler. These are likely some of those that I found last week. They were feeding on winter buds of a Cottonwood. Also near the lake was a Golden-crowned Kinglet. He was in the same area where there were 2 in early January, so it could be a repeat winter resident. With no snow covering the grassland nearby, a male Northern Harrier was hovering just above the ground in search of a meal. He did dive onto the ground once, but he almost immediately returned to the air without a meal.
