Yesterday we saw our first hummer of the season. It came and went so
quickly can not say for sure it was a ruby-throated but believe it was.
Also had (for 24 hours) 2 blue-winged teal migrating through; a male
Our robins have been gone for two weeks but did see a lonesome straggler
on the highway outside Macclenny.
We have at least 3 pairs of rufous sided towhees who are permanent
residents and at least 2 pairs of cardinals.
1 pair of mockingbirds
purple martins setting up residence
at least 25 goldfinch, about 1/4 showing considerable yellow
at least 50 sparrows - primarily chipping but an occasional clay-colored
and 1 white-throated seen Thursday.
Hope everyone is enjoying the arrival of spring.
Baker County, FL
