prospect (ive) bird migration

Perhaps we are in the very early stage of spring migration for passerines even though the official equinox day is still a month away. Two species reported today , CEDAR WAXWING and COMMON GRACKLE are around. The waxwings were in two flocks, one bathing in the Vale of Cashmere, whereas the grackles are more dispersed but just a few birds .

Both reports came from Linda Ewing and Eni Falci.
