Dave and CT Birders -
I actually went looking for them yesterday. They are seen each year where we have a bluebird trail we were putting the boxes back out at. No sign of them there or displaying at or near the sanctuary yet. Wood frogs not active here yet either. They usually go together here.
After attending the CT Flower show I have MAJOR spring fever!
BTW I released a beautiful female pileated woodpecker this week!

Over the next couple of weeks migrants should be augmenting the few birds that managed to overwinter and displays should be occurring any calm evening that the temp is around 40 degrees or higher. Spring is just around the corner, on my morning run today I heard virtually every species in the neighborhood in full song. It is also time to start watching for Bonaparte's Gulls staging, from now until early April.
