was (?????) this would be quite early for this species.

BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE 20 It is a unusual to see this many
chickadees all at the same time hanging out together this time of the
year. When I got closer to the group I found that they were mobbing a
adult female MERLIN. Shortly after counting the chickadees the merlin
buzzed the group and then there were 19.
|Discovered a woodcock nesting on 4 eggs just a stone's throw from
the house. She's been on the nest for almost a week since I
discovered her, so I am watching for babies to appear almost any day.
|Scott's Landing: 9:00-10:00 AM
5 Ruby-crowned Kinglets, 8 White-throated Sparrows, 15 Palm Warblers,
2 Yellow-rumped Warblers, 1 Black and White Warbler, 1 Piliated

Young pileated woodpecker going from tree to tree.
Lots of 'regulars' on the feeders - goldfinches, chickadees,
nuthatches, downy woodpeckers and hairy woodpeckers.
The robins, sparrows and juncos feeding on the ground are abundant.
