Spring migration warming up.

It's definately looking a lot like April in the area. I took an early morning, pre-church hike Sunday to Riverbend Recreational Area. For those who don't know, Riverbend is immediately North, North-East of Findlay Reservoir #2, along the river, right where it makes a 90 degree turn west.
Migrants seen were Ruby and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Hermit Thrushes, Fox Sparrows, White-throat and White-crowned Sparrows and many, many Juncos and Song Sparrows.
Also of note, observed flying overhead was one Common Loon and about 125 Bonaparte's Gulls, and along the wires just outside of Riverbend were my first Tree Swallows of the year.
The weather is suppose to turn nasty around here Monday and Tuesday; this will probably slow migration up quite a bit.
