Our bleak March 20th. Spring Equinox transects stand in contrast to the transects done yesterday and today (30th & 31st). Just ten days have elapsed but now our observers are seeing 30 to 35 species. On Grey Doe yesterday nine Turkey Vultures and the first Killdeers. Along Captain Cootes trail were a Horned Grebe and the songs of Song Sparrows, American tree Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos. On Cherry Hill route today a single Tree Swallow – early but not record-early. It’s a start.
