Thanks, everyone, for the lead to eNature.com for bird
calls! I spent an hour on the computer yesterday
listening for mystery birds and I finally nailed the
Black-billed Cuckoo (linked to the tent caterpillar
invasion, I understand?) and Northern Waterthrush.
Now I have to try to actually SEE them...but what a
difference it makes to hear the songs.
Phoebe nestlings on the barn, seems early this year.
Female Towhee hasn't arrived yet, male is still
singing away, as are the RB Grosbeaks and Hermit
Thrushes. Female Oriole stopped shredding the twine
so I assume the nest is complete. Will put on my
mosquito jacket and try to locate it this am. Bugs
are really bad in the swamp here!
