Red-Winged Blackbirds are back!

I saw my first red-winged blackbirds of the year today by Wingra Creek! They were with a flock of either other red-winged blackbirds, or some other black colored birds (maybe grackles?). I couldn't get close enough to see.

I heard and saw a whole bunch of Canada Geese too. There seem to be a lot of those moving around these days. I heard a bird call that may have been a killdeer today. But I don't know my bird calls very well, so I may have been wrong.

I haven't seen any robins yet. I find that surprising because my memory is that the blackbirds usually come after the robins. So, let me know if you see any robins. Maybe they will come with the warm weather that is coming in the next few days.
