In the more open field and brushy areas, Wild Turkey, Mourning Dove, Eastern Towhee, Brown Thrasher, Northern Cardinal, Eastern Phoebe, American Robin, American Goldfinch, Brown-headed Cowbirds, and Song Sparrows made an appearance and most sang or vocalized.

We had a number of early migrants, Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, Eastern Phoebe, Brown Creepers, and both Kinglets. Other first-of-year birds that showed up include, Tree Swallows and Northern Rough-winged Swallows, a Broad-winged hawk circled directly over our heads, an early Green Heron and five Hooded Mergansers popped into view.
In 2017, migration brought sparrows, swallows, three Brown Creepers and a Louisiana Waterthrush. Snowy early-spring gave way to warm late spring in the course of the morning. What will we see this year?
