Or, as Ron did, check out your yard. We were surprised to see a Bay-breasted Warbler, perhaps two, in our willow 2 days ago. This is a first for our house list - ever. We have lived here in Weybridge for 37 years. I am hoping my yoga classes will prevent any oncoming cases of warbler neck in the ensuing weeks.

I also had my FOY Black-throated Green Warbler in my back yard this morning as well as a singing House Wren. And I found a recently completed Carolina Wren nest in my garage too.

It really felt like spring in Middlebury this morning, as the favorable overnight winds seem to have ushered in a surge of new migrants. I rode my bike out Creek Road south of town and then back in Foote Street and had ten first of year birds! Highlights included five species of warbler (including FOY Yellow, Black-throated Green, and Northern Waterthrush), several Solitary Sandpipers, a Green Heron, a Warbling Vireo, and at least two Gray Catbirds.
Get out and see what's coming through if you can today!
