Hi everyone,

   I went for a walk this morning from Teepee Tonka Park to River Bend
Nature Center and saw a plethora of birds. Most shocking was an Ovenbird!
This is by far my earliest record for this species. On another warbler note,
I also saw Orange Crowned Warblers in three different locations.


  Other new birds for the year were: Brown Thrasher, House Wren, Bank
Swallow, and many, many White-throated Sparrows.


  More highlights included Lincoln's Sparrow, Hermit Thrush, Brown Creeper,
and an Eastern Meadowlark singing in the prairie at River Bend (which is a
rare occurrence here).


  It will be interesting to hear what everybody else sees today after that
strong southern wind all day yesterday.


Good birding!
