For a rainy Sunday, April 2 turned out pretty good here. Just a couple of dozen birds in the morning but one was a Vespers Sparrow which I successfully stalked for 20 minutes over a 200 yard area until I finally got within 10 feet of it. From that vantage point I was able to study it for 5 long minutes as it fed in short grass, It was a bit wet and bedraggled but a subtle beauty none the less.
I went out again at 6 pm and saw our first pair of Rough-winged Swallows and also our first Chimney Swifts. On the Lake were a pair of Pied-billed Grebes which have been hanging around for a least two weeks and finally a lone female Red-breasted Merganser. I presume the same bird that appeared for a couple of weeks last year though a bit earlier.
