No other time of the year is more exciting for birding in Ohio than now, early May. As I write this blog, unusual visitors are hopping about in the treetops of my backyard and neighborhood. Who woulda thought a Black-throated Green warbler would hang out in an urban setting? I hope you are enjoying the warming temperatures and beautiful days of May as much as I am.

One of my favorite spring sounds / calls is the beautiful whistle of the Eastern Towhee. They often hide well in forests and bushes so tough to see but in spring, they are vocal and more visible.
