Kinglets

Wednesday, April 13th, 2022

Twenties (F) again this morning when Captain Jack and I hit the trails. Again, we were alone up there except for the birds and deer. The weather radar showed a snow shower, but the only precipitation I saw was out west a ways, and that didn’t reach us until our return trip.

Mostly juncos and siskins again—although this time the juncos outnumbered the siskins. Funnest birds were the little pair of Ruby-crowned Kinglets we encountered on our way up, poking their way about in the budding maples.

Supposed to warm up to the point of rain in the next day or two, and then turn more seasonable. Not many days until Jack and I head back to Maine. Changes.

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