Found my first of the season Hermit Thrush up on the ridge this morning. I had seen a Hermit Thrush in the park on January 19, but not since. That earlier one was presumably a late lingerer from last year, but this mornings is probably a spring arrival.
Another first of the year for me was Swamp Sparrow in the fenced in brush area on the north side of the soccer fields, though Nadir reported one there yesterday.
Once again there was a Fox Sparrow with the White-throats in The Clove.
