We may not be moving around much, but the birds are. I found 5 species of warblers at Lodi Lake this morning, including singing Black-throated Gray, Common Yellowthroat, and Yellow-rumped. Calling species were an early Wilson's Warbler (near Pigs Lake) and two Orange-crowns. Other highlights included
an early Barn Swallow,
two Swainson's Hawks traveling north in company, a Bufflehead at the lake, a Hermit Thrush (calling but not singing, alas), and 3 Lincoln's Sparrows. Singing Ruby-crowned Kinglets were everywhere.
When I first arrived, ripples at the edge of the lake proved to be either a muskrat or a nutria.
