Quick notes

Some flashes of bird reports:

Golden-crowned Kinglet and Turkey Vulture reported by Mary today in Prospect.

Yesterday, I spotted a lone drake Ring-necked Duck on the Upper Pool.
2 Pied billed Grebes, 2 North SHovelers with number of Ruddy Ducks on the Lake

Rob Jett reported American Woodcocks in Greenwood Cemetery. Check his "sights &sounds post"

And last though not a spring sign , the sun let out a giant burp, a massive solar storm wave set to slam into earth today...look for Northern Lights if you are up north or along the Great Lakes latitude states ( if you have relatives there)....IN NYC, not a possibility....   :(
