Sparrow movement

The Song Sparrows started to visit a few days ago and this morning the first pair of Chipping Sparrows put in a brief appearance stuffing down fallen seeds on the ground below the Grackle-feeder. In the nearby Morgan Arboretum there have been reports in the last few days of Killdeer, pairing Red-shouldered Hawks, Kinglets and a numbr of other new returnees. Every day sees skeins of Canada Geese and Snow Geese overhead. There are weeks of migration to go, but it’s underway …… and a bit earlier than last year too.
