South winds earlier this week helped bring new songbirds to Pheasant Branch Conservancy. Eastern Phoebes have taken up residence at nearly all of the bridges along the creek corridor. There have been a few Hermit Thrushes, but more are on the way. Golden-crowned Kinglets are moving through in good numbers, but so far only a couple Ruby-crowned Kinglets.
Tree Swallows aren't wasting any time. Nearly every bird box along the North Fork trail has been claimed. Sometimes Tree Swallows show a green iridesence, and other times blue.
