April

Year Day Event
2017 01 Yellow-rumped warblers are back, and are they bright! Bright breeding plumage, and singing breezy little songs, as well.
2017 3 First chimney swifts both heard and seen. Cardinals very occupied singing much of the day. Even more yellow-rumped warblers, and one Audubon's type, I believe. Red oaks and cedar elms are mostly fully leafed-out, if not entirely unfolded, but the pecans seem to just be getting started. Cedar waxwings are still with us in small flocks. The huge flocks of robins are gone. White-winged doves continue their domination of the dove domain, with few mourning doves left, at least in this area. Eurasian collared doves have shown up on the next street, but not yet here.
