The birds seem to think it's spring or something, but I can't really say I agree with this sentiment. The Pine (all the birds in this post) and Yellow-rumped Warblers have started singing pretty hard the last week or so. Today while I was doing yoga, I witnessed two black vultures getting it on in the front yard. Migration has started also: had 5 new yardbirds within the last couple days. This is all good news, since I'm not really a fan of winter. So come on come on spring, get on ovah here!
It's going to be my first spring in a while without chasing Golden-cheeked warblers around, which is just a little bittersweet. Yikes! But I'll be out near some of my all-time favorite places (Northern Nevada/Utah/Oregon/Idaho) and I'll get to spend some quality time with western birds again. Definitely looking forward to the field season! So like I said, hurry up spring! Nature Notes
