I’ve almost been afraid all the ducks would pass by before Pierce Lake opened. And the flood of Ross’s Geese into northern Illinois and Indiana seems to have missed Winnebago County. But the usual early land birds that should have been here 3 weeks ago can finally be found with ease. Today our Carolina Wren (Shaw Woods) has been singing all day long, and pretty much on schedule, there was a Turkey Vulture over Sinnissippi Park this afternoon. So I’m convinced.
