Spring is still springing, and we finally hit 70 degrees at the CNP. We have had a few new species since last Thursday.
The yard has been so wet, a couple of Mallards landed nearby, not a usual visitor to the CNP. More rain (goodbye 70-degree-day) is predicted for this weekend too.
The Chipping Sparrows have arrived, adding to the Dark-eyed Junco trills. A Ruby-crowned Kinglet made a short appearance, but has not stuck around.
It’s been a few months since we’ve seen a Brown Creeper and Friday Dakota found one after school. Not new for the year, but a fun find nonetheless.
New as of Friday April 11, 2008
- Ruby-crowned Kinglet
- Hermit Thrush
- Chipping Sparrow
- Brown-headed Cowbird
We eagerly await more birds and wildflowers at the CNP! (Although we’ll be busy doing bird counts when migration really hits 🙂
