We heard two American Woodcock last night at 8:56 pm from the dead end at the southwest end of Jameson Drive (just west of Fisher Dr) in SW Peterborough. After peenting for a minute one flew up and away to the south while another continued peenting. Also heard were Killdeer, and 200 flyover Canada Geese and Mallards. There were also 4 Tree Swallows flying over Little Lake at 5:02 pm on 31 March viewed from the cemetery. Also a Pied-billed Grebe on the lake. Lots of birds seem to be arriving. I also had an Eastern Meadowlark and Northern Flicker on Stewart Line.
