April 10 - Tenafly Nature Center

Yet another unseasonably cold morning, but I tried to find a few birds before work today.
One vanguard of Spring is the Pine Warbler. I saw a few of these birds here one week ago during a warm front, and several continued through today. A nice spot of color in an otherwise still lifeless looking woodland.

Also seen today were Brown Creeper, Golden-Crowned Kinglet, Eastern Phoebe, White-Breasted Nuthatch, Dark-eyed Junco, Black-Capped Chickadee, Song Sparrow, Wood Duck, Tree Swallow, Common Grackle, Red-Winged Blackbird.

Once it finally gets warm, there will be a big push of new species coming into the area.
The only question is when ?
