I’ve started hearing Eastern Towhees calling in the distance on recent metropark visits. Handsome, isn’t he!
A sound of spring, a Song Sparrow singing from the treetops.
My first Tree Swallow sighting was last weekend at a metropark where they were checking out nesting boxes…house hunting!
Eastern Phoebes are back and calling in the mornings! I have not seen one yet but hearing them regularly now.
One of the less popular spring migrants, Brown-headed Cowbirds are back and making lovely noises. Some people don’t respect them because they are nest stealers and leave their offspring to be raised by other birds(!).
