Spring Migration is Happening!

It's that time of year again when birds are starting to return in good numbers, and although the season is still quite delayed to what it should be, I still had several "first of the year" birds last week.  While at Point Pelee a little while ago I had lots of migrants including Eastern Phoebe, Northern Flicker, Tree Swallows as well as Field and Chipping Sparrow.  Apparently a Henslow's Sparrow was found at Point Pelee this week, so the "good" birds are on their way!
