I heard and saw the first Bobolinks May 10 and managed some photos more recently. The males perch right on the tip of an apple tree branch to sing.  I’ve also included pictures of two cormorants on one of their favourite perches on the river just south of Lakefield near the entrance to the Greenhouse garden centre on May 21.
