I went up to Berlin Pond yesterday morning looking for what many of us consider the true sign of spring — the arrival of Yellow Warblers. I had the truck windows down and could hear them singing before we even parked. These are the kind of warblers I like — they are at eye level and are little yellow beacons in the shrubbery.
I saw several other FOY birds (Barn Swallows, Purple Martins) as well as a great selection of birds. I then went over to the airport looking for new arrivals and way out in a field, I saw and heard my first Eastern Meadowlark.
