Spring Migration

I've been slowly adding species, but am holding tight currently in 3rd with 84! Today, I got my FOY blue-gray gnatcatcher in...you guessed it...lakeshore preserve. (All of my species have been on foot there so far.) Yesterday, I finally found some yellow-bellied sapsuckers in Bill's woods, and singing chipping sparrows are all around campus again. There was also a sora singing in university bay marsh.

Over the weekend, I took a long walk and had a singing swamp sparrow by university bay. There was a single pine warbler singing in the pines on the edge of bills woods, and a great blue heron hunting the edge of lake Mendota.
