Raven in the Wind

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

A clear, nippy, breezy morning. Wind not favorable to spring migration, but several birds were out singing—towhee, chickadee, cardinal, chippy, phoebe. Bluebirds have grabbed the first bird box, swallows have laid claim to a couple upper ones.

One of the nicest sights was a raven out play-flying in the wind.
