Song Sparrows Singing!

St.Boniface Industrial Park

Had another day off ,poor employer is very sick!Lots of male Red-winged Blackbirds have arrived and were scattered around the two marshes.As I was approaching the sedge meadow heard my first song from a migrating bird,a Song Sparrow!A few moments later heard a Western Meadowlark belt out part of a song!In a swamp with many dead snags a Mourning Dove was back at it's favorite haunt.Only new species seen in all the ponds were a pair of Buffleheads.As I was exiting the park a Black-billed Magpie was seen building a nest near the police station.Of all the years of seeing American Tree Sparrows passing through never heard a male sing.But today one perched prominently on bush singing!


  1. Spring is definitely here and the birds are so welcome.

    1. Yes,it is Ruth!Will be going out tomorrow and see what other new birds are about!Thanks for following my blog!
