More Spring Arrivers
Since returning from Chincoteague Island, the birds have been quickly following me northward into the Western New York area. Yesterday while assisting with the stocking of Trout along some of the Steams, I finally heard my first of the year Winter Wren (CHECK) who was singing its beautiful complex song. Later in the evening I observed the American Kestrel (CHECK first of the year) as it was wagging its tail at me! Finally this morning I got my first of the year Eastern Phoebe (CHECK) was proudly yelling fee-bee . . . . fee-bee around the office! (((SMILE))) I just love this time of the year!
Yes, I am falling behind in editing all my Chincoteague pictures (sorry this is a fun time of the year with the birds!) . . . . Yesterday I adventured up to Chautaugua Lake area searching for the White Pelicans that were first located the day I was leaving for Virginia. They were observed all weekend but of course as soon as I return they had disappeared. When I do finally locate these birdies, this would become another lifer that I will be adding to my checklist. CHEERS! I am having a great year with adding lifers to my checklist!
I promise more to come on my trip to Chincoteague!
