Spring is upon us and it has been absolutely stunning from both a birding perspective and of recently, from a weather perspective. As with most of you, we have been out in the field and our yards enjoying all of the sights and sounds that come with this wonderful time of year.
With spring often comes a pile of other responsibilities in our professional and personal lives and finding the time to truly get out in the woods and take part in some heavy-duty birding can sometimes be a challenge.
