the water levels are creeping up but with the temperatures forecast for this coming week, I expect the 'creep' will change to 'climb'....I'm figuring that we probably only have a few more days of walking across the grasslands before it is all under water.
the male Red-wing Blackbird is probably contemplating the same thing....like how long before this silly sign is underwater again (a good place for it!)
and finally, the log 'bay' is once more a 'bay!'
all the pilings are just swarming with Tree Swallows - you just can't capture it in a photo. I'm wondering when the Purple Martin will show up.
This morning was the first day that first of all, I heard a Common Yellow-throat.... and then later in the day...
the first Orange Crowned Warbler of the season. Still haven't seen a Yellow-rump although I hear they are around.
a lot of Song Sparrow activity the last couple of days....and saw a Lincoln Sparrow but didn't get a photo.

Dark-eyed Junco that have been hanging about for the past few weeks.
