Peter's report

PINE WARBLER continues to offer the best  observations these days, two seen back in the woods of Lower Pool , and both shores which made it difficult to see them with the branches in the way. But patience was rewarded with very proximate looks at a sipping PINE at a very open Binnen Waters spot on the 3 Arches Nethermead Br south side. Its a potential good spot for the upcoming migration.

A pair of WOOD DUCKS were seen at the Upper Pool back shore, wary even as I approached the fence too far from them .

A BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON juvenile on Three Sisters Islands, a flyover OSPREY at Terrace Bridge,  HERMIT THRUSH on the Quaker/Ravine slope  and a nice looking single CHIPPING SPARROW on the Peninsula meadow near Well Dr were some early spring  and appreciative sightings after work in late afternoon.
