Spring Migration 2022


Recommended Posts

Saw two California gulls today which are the first migrants I’ve seen this year. One was reported yesterday at the same location that was the first one in the city for 2022. 

Other than that lots of woodpeckers drumming and I’ve seen quite a few magpies and ravens carrying sticks the last few days.

I had 1 Brown-headed Cowbird yesterday in our yard. A sign they will likely show up at our feeders in large numbers soon. I had a group of about 30 Cedar Waxwings in our backyard trees yesterday evening. All the year round birds seem to be singing and they are exhibiting nesting behavior.

Saw my first Eastern Towhee (male) this morning, seems to be a bit earlier than last year. Also saw a Herring Gull cruising a shopping center parking lot (he scored a pizza slice) - not a usual sight in my area.

Nice! Eastern Towhees are a nemesis of mine.

The light rain here has stopped. I took a 20 minute walk in my neighborhood & local park, and heard a couple of towhees. This is the first time this year I've heard them in my neighborhood, and this is the time of year when they arrive.

Also, one of the resident Red-shouldered Hawks was calling high in a tree.

It's in the mid-50s here, sunny, but we're expecting snow on Friday and temps in the teens. Then it's supposed to get up to almost 70 by Sunday. Typical Missouri.

Had a pair of Pileateds flitting around the house and a bluejay doing a credible imitation of a hawk.

And I still can't buy a Blue Jay sighting.  :classic_sad:  Four all year over four counties, none in my yard where I can often get that many at one time.

Unshelled unsalted Peanuts! Not only will they come they come around and yell at you for more.
