FOY* White-eyed Vireo

As spring unfolds the warm-weather birds start to appear, such as the Tree Swallows and Bank Swallows I mentioned a few days ago. Yet, some winter birds are still around. I’m still seeing Slate-colored Juncos (a.k.a. “Snow Birds”), Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, and on today’s walk, I saw four Ring-billed Gulls.

To counterbalance the presence of those winter species, this morning I saw my (*) first-of-the-year White-eyed Vireo. It was encouraging to see the Vireo because it means that the spring migration is ratcheting up.

I’m still waiting to hear the skeeaw and gulp of the Green Herons. Should be any day now (although our colder than average March weather might be holding them back).
