Before moving on to some of the new arrivals, I want to report that the Wild Turkey was encountered again this morning. As I said in some facebook psotings, I have decided its name is Norma, because it was ready for its close-up!

Back to the more conventional migrants. On the incoming tide there were two Least Sandpipers feeding on the shrinking mudflats of the bay north of the soccer fields - my first of the year. Yesterday Ed and I were surprised that we did not see a Black-throated Blue Warbler, especially when there were so many Black-throated Greens around. Today the Blues outnumbered the Greens!

Finally, to mention a few plants - the large lilac bush by the Hudson River overlook has started to bloom.
