Thirty minutes spent on Possum Trot Rd. at Berry College this morning turned
up only a few species. Highlights were the SNOW GOOSE reported recently by
Cindy Tobin. It was feeding in a field near the horse barn in association
with a number of Canada Geese. SAVANNAH SPARROWS still hanging out - this
seems to be one of their favorite places anywhere. Three species of
swallows: NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW, BARN SWALLOW, and TREE SWALLOW.
One of the latter was peering impatiently out of a bluebird box near the end
of the fields; soon the other parent arrived to tag team. Box bird took off
like a rocket. As I retraced my path, I noted a Tree Swallow peeking from
another bluebird box; I stopped to watch for a while, but no relief
appeared. Eventually, (s)he departed anyway.
Very good news that at least two boxes are occupied. Maybe this explains why
I've recently noticed Eastern Bluebirds actually nesting in natural
