Very early spring in Greenwood Cemetery

A warm spot opened in Greeenwood Cemetery today with several species obviously early -- I say very early--spring migrants. ( I'm  Not ready for winter to move on).

First to say is definitely a spring bird is an American Woodcock. It was reported by Rob Bate along with two Eastern Phones. Of the latter one may be the overwintering Phoebe. The former the woodcock was found up from Cypress Ave near Vine Ave.

More spring signs in midwinter in the form of Chipping Sparrows and Palm Warbler also were observed. Daisy Paul reported a flock with the Chippies and a single Palm.
