More signs of spring
Last weekend a few spring migrants had started to arrive. This weekend, a few more, notably Black-and-white Warbler (a fine male, below), as well as a handful of Yellow-rumped Warbers, Tree Swallow, Rough-winged Swallow and more Eastern Phoebes.
Red-winged Blackbirds have been back for a while.
Rusty Blackbirds (3), tricky to find in DC, were foraging in a pond by the Visitor Centre.
Most of the rusty feather edges have worn by spring, but in the right light this individual still shows a few.
Of additional note were a pair of Blue-winged Teal on the ponds, a pair of Wood Duck and 3 Goosander (Common Merganser) from the end of the Marsh Board walk, and 4 Purple Finches (3 females and 1 male) near the Visitor Centre.
