This blows Birdcouple away. Every spring, the Wood Thrushes arrive in our back forty (actually back 1.8 acres of woods) and serenade us throughout the summer, until they head south in August or early September. Their arrival heralds the start of the season here at the Lovenest.
Warren keeps pretty careful records of BC's birdsightings, using Avisys software.
The Wood Thrushes arrived on April 24, 2007; April 23, 2008 and .... (drum roll goes here) this year .. today, April 23.
How DO they do it? Without Blackberry, personal organizer or even a wall calender, they just know how to get here and when to get here.
Welcome back, Wood Thrushes.
