Spring Harbingers

Spring, and all those colorful, tiny migrants, seems far away, but to remind us that migration is much more than Mt. Auburn in May, this week marked the arrival of three reliable harbingers of spring.  Ludlow heard Red Winged Blackbirds at Great Meadows, at the White Pond Reservation rookery, and in West Concord.  Today, saw our first Killdeer and this evening, from across the Assabett River here at Concord Birds 2013 HQ we heard our first American Woodcock peenting.  Welcome back, spring.

Nice. I was seeing about 50 Killdeer here in Sarasota FL until a week ago. I wonder if one of them was yours.
