Sometimes we get so wrapped up with the arrivals of spring migration, we fail to notice or mark the departures. We were sad to see our Common Redpolls and American Tree Sparrows head back north to their breeding grounds. And we continue to see an isolated Pine Siskin every now and then as they continue their migration as well.
The next few weeks promise to bring many more birds - some to stay an breed and others just passing through! I can't wait!!
