A brief walk in the woods during lunchtime at Lake Crabtree County
Park (Wake County, NC) netted a BLACK-AND-WHITE
WARBLER, my first of the year, foraging (and singing loudly) with a
mixed flock - it's not out of the question that this was an
overwintering bird, but was nonetheless a nice harbinger of things
to come for me. Only other bird of "note" was an AMERICAN
KESTREL, which I note because it was perched on a snag a ways
into the woods, which seemed a bit unusual.
The other usual suspects were, on the whole, singing rather lustily
Didn't see anything in bloom yet (other than the redbuds on the
way in), but saw Hexastylis/Asarum sp. poking foliage up along
with what looked like Atamasco lilies.
I love Spring.
