This weekend I birded many areas on the northern shores of Lake Monroe. The amount of singing birds was also a nice sign of spring. I have been hearing many Northern Cardinals, Tufted Titmice, and Song Sparrows. Today I also heard the boucing ball trill of the Field Sparrow for the first time this spring.
This young Red-tailed Hawk kept cruising over the feeding robins. Each time the robins would give their plaintive, high pitched call to warn the flock that he was back.
