|The Tundra Swans are back.|
Signs of spring were popping up--I saw my first Tree Swallows in quite a while, hunting over the water and a few Red-winged Blackbirds were noisily staking out their territories. I wasn't finding anything new though, until I wandered around way in the back in the Ocean end by the Upper Reservoir where there is an abandoned bog that sometimes has bluebirds roosting in the trees. No bluebirds, but I did flush my first Wood Ducks of the year. They flew up and went squealing away in the direction of Fort Dix.
So, while not a lot birds to see, (19 species) I did find enough to stay interested on my 4+ mile walk.
