Cold start 28 degrees, hazy sunrise.  Surprised to hear Field Sparrow 
singing, early, not really I observer one here on April 2 last year. Just do 
not hear them sing until late April. Still large flocks of Robins in the 
fields, I look over them all but no Meadow Lark as of yet.   A walk out to 
pond netted Sapsuckers and Kinglets and on the very small opening of water a 
pair of Wood ducks.  No White-Throated Sparrow but I am still looking.
