Return Of Osprey And More

It's a good indicator that spring migration is picking up when the Osprey return to their nesting platforms.
 An early morning walk through the forest was the perfect place to practice social distancing. The fresh air filtered by the White Pines was a relaxing way to leave behind all the bad news we've been exposed to lately. I saw my first Palm Warblers and Louisiana Waterthrush during my walk around the reservoir.
 Doesn't look like a good place for birds here.What bird would be interested in a man-made cement landscape?
Rough-winged Swallows nest in the holes in the cement walls of the dam every year. Terrible photo but a new first of year species for me. Every weekend between now and the end of May should bring new surprises.
