Spring birds headed your way

Heard WhiteThroats and saw a immature RedWing Blackbird today. Dang, its only February. Was the woodchuck wrong?

The geese were high flying over Rochester two days ago in the PM. I'll bet they are confused today!

Happy Lent!

They definitely are confused if not also smart. A friend in Michigan told me two days ago large flocks of geese were headed SOUTH!
I guess they went north to soon.

A flock of grackles and blackbirds have arrived today. I expect to see robins soon since they often travel together.

This is the time of year for snow geese, here at the east end of Lake Ontario, though I haven't seen any yet myself. I don't see them every year, they fly higher and their honking sounds a bit different somehow. We won't be seeing migrating Canada geese for a while yet but the ones that hang around all winter not far south and east of here will occasionally fly by at odd times, at low altitudes and in small numbers.

I saw a flock of canadian geese flying north past my office window in Troy. On the way home I saw flocks of them in Halfmoon picking through a harvested corn field.

I'd bet that after this next storm passes we all will see quite an influx of migrators and hibernators coming around.

I live in northern Washington County and have had chipmunks for two weeks. One tried getting into my cellar door the other day. It's been a good winter for birds, many cardinals this year.

Many flocks, small and large, of geese were flying north this morning. I haven't seen a robin but a neighbor has. I did hear an owl this morning and I assume its time for mating.

With nearly 50 in Rochester yesterday, the noisy V's were up high in the sky big time, Likely more snow to come (I never put the shovel away until Mother's Day), but the light at the end of the tunnel is glowing very brightly now!
