It was nice to get out again today when the weather was actually sunny and what might qualify as being “warm”. Sandhill Cranes were finally spotted – a nice flock of a dozen flew over and landed in a farmer’s field.
There are still plenty of Ruby and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Brown Creepers, etc. fluttering about. Most of the neotropical migrants are most likely still stockpiling south of us. The highlight today was a Barred Owl. He responded to my “Who Cooks For You?” immitation and eyed us before departing.

Great sighting! I have spent some time this year with a Barred Owl in my neck of the woods. What great birds! I absolutely love their call, especially when they strike up a conversation with another owl across the woods.
Barred Owls are the coolest… I always get chills when I hear them “barking”
