Question of the day

How’s the birding been?

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

If you’ve been out to look for birds in the last two or three weeks I’d like to know your reaction. Lots of birds? Few birds? Variety of species but few individuals? Better than past years? Worse? I’ve been out almost every morning since May 1, in favorite spots near our home, in county parks, in northwestern Wisconsin. Most days I’ve wondered where the birds are or went. How would you describe this spring? Indigo Buntings, local nesters, have been easy to see. This male was singing at Baker regional park at Lake Independence.
