More Spring Arrivals!

The parade of migratory songbirds continues! This morning in Pheasant Branch a few more “first of spring” arrivals included OVENBIRD, MAGNOLIA WARBLER, also INDIGO BUNTING and EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE. It was a special treat to see several SCARLET TANAGERS glowing in the morning sunlight – wow, so spectacular! While myself and two other birders were listening to the chorus of birds, all of a sudden a COOPER’S HAWK zoomed into the woods. It was like someone flipped a switch – the birds scattered and the silence was almost deafening!
