Five Rivers today - Delmar, NY


No new arrivals, but plenty of bird song and activity; Ruby-crowned kinglets very active around the Wood Duck Marsh (which also had wood ducks), our first Field Sparrow of the year, and song sparrows seemingly everywhere. Frog vocalizations continue, with bullfrogs now joining the spring peepers and wood frogs, and the research ponds were full of tadpoles of various sizes, and even several salamanders!  Complete ebird list below. - Scott and Denise
