I created this blog on February 23rd, 2005. I had no idea at the time it would last so long. I haven't been doing much digiscoping this month, but things should start to pick up in March as spring migration gets underway. Some birders in southern Wisconsin have already sighted returning Sandhill Cranes. Birdsong is picking up, too. House Finches, American Tree Sparrows, and Northern Cardinals are all taking part in late winter's morning chorus. Through January and February I typically only go birding once a week, but sometime next month I'll begin my daily visits to Pheasant Branch Conservancy to see the early migrants.
