This past week:
Osprey: Harry had an Osprey at a small private lake west of Alpharetta on
Sunday. This seemed an unusual location for an Osprey and I wondered if its
regular haunt would be Lake Lanier ...
Fish Crows: I was greeted by the repeated calls of a Fish crow when I
stepped outside one day last week. It flew from a tall pine across the street.
Their numbers are increasing. This spring I've noticed 6-8 Fish crows in
shopping centers where there would be 1 or 2 in the past.
Wintering: Ruby-crowned kinglet, White-throated sparrows still here. WTSPs
leave here (our half-acre) around the first of May. It's likely the very
same ones will return to our yard next year. Cedar waxwings still whistle
through. Yellow-rumps are scarce and very black-and-white. Brown creeper and
juncos long gone.
Arrivals: Rough-winged swallows just increased from 1 to 3 at the lake this
Our yard resonates with Goldfinch chatter, and they land on anything I fill
with their favorite food. But no other migrants yet.
