A beautiful day with highs in the 60s! Today was the first day I heard the kill-dee kill-dee call of the killdeer (Charadrius vociferus). They must be back! I also heard a couple of other bird calls that I couldn't identify. So other birds are back too! I'm not very good at identifying bird calls. I need to get help from my daughter who has good musical abilities.
And unfortunately for those of us allergic to maple pollen, the silver maple buds in the picture above look about ready to burst open.
