4/13/05 -- Yesterday's Bird Report

Below is yesterday's Bird Report. The migrants are coming in, warbler by warbler. This morning, between 7 and 9 a.m. The Early Birders saw a warbler not listed below, a Black&White Warbler. We ran into Starr Saphir and her large group. She reported seeing a Golden-winged Warbler this morning, at 6:55 a.m.

Another end of winter sign: Yesterday was the last day of feeder-filling until the fall,
But winter seems to be hanging on for dear life. It was freezingin the park this morning as it was yesterday. Out with the handwarmers again.
