Fascinating how the same arrivals and behaviors can happen at similar
times over large distances. Yesterday four Hooded Mergansers were on
our very small pond (maybe 30 feet in diameter) for the first, and maybe
only, time this year.
Also saw my first Phoebe this morning high in a treetop. It wasn't singing.
We are on the south end of Snake Mountain in Cornwall.
Happy springtime to you,
