Have you noticed how noisy it's getting in the morning lately?
Let's meet at Vischer Ferry by the Whipple bridge at 9:00am to check the newly-open ponds.
In non-avian nature notes, the mild weather and rainy evenings this week may get amphibians moving towards their breeding spots. If you're driving near vernal pools after dusk, watch for frogs and salamanders crossing the road and give them a hand if it's safe to do so. Consider reporting sightings to the Amphibian Migration and Road Crossings project, too.
