Yesterday I heard my first local Eastern Phoebe of the year, along the 7th Line Smith. As well, this morning a pair of Tree Swallows were already checking out their nest box (they nest in our yard every year), which surprised me considering they just arrived to the area. This evening an American Woodcock was peenting & twittering in the field behind our house. Now I’m just waiting for the frogs to begin calling!
