Soon after, a few meters down the trail, there was a singing Common Yellowthroat. I couldn't seem to remember at that point but I've checked now, and it is indeed another bird I've never seen before at Turner's. This brings my tally up to ninety two.
Numbers aside, I think I coolest thing about this morning was the number of nests we found: an Eastern Kingbird nest on a branch over the water and a Red-winged Blackbird nest in the same tree; two Mourning Dove nests each occupied by a hunkered-down bird; an American Robin nest and two Common Grackle nests; a pair of Black-capped Chickadees bringing inchworms to their cavity; two Northern Flicker cavities, one, or maybe both, active. Also, there are rumors of a Green Heron building a nest. And if all of that wasn't enough, a brood of twenty two Mallard ducklings finished hatching this morning in the courtyard of the Glover elementary school and were escorted through the hallways and down to the pond.
