Spring Birds

It's been a few weeks since the early spring birds came back. Robins (like this one in our garden), Killdeer, Red-winged Blackbirds, Grackles and Vultures are now quite ubiquitous. The last couple of weeks have seen migration start to gather pace. Swallows, sparrows, the first Pine Warblers, terns and the like are all arriving with new species appearing every day.

Great Egret at Van Wagners Pond, Hamilton - 2 April.

Tree Swallow in residence at Tommy Thompson Park, Toronto - 12 April.
