Warm and wet, high wind, a number of birds on the hill (including a Sharp-shinned Hawk following a flock of redpolls). But the nearest I got to bird life was in town: turkeys in my front yard and gulls at the grocery store.

Still, spring is shaping up nicely.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
