Some early, but light, rain dampened the exodus. However, the urge north is upon us.
It’s the departure of the winter residents more than the spring arrivals that marks this time of year. Wintering sparrows and raptors are thinning out. That said, I was in Klamath Falls this weekend and the transition highlights were: dancing Grebes, Swainson’s and Ferruginous Hawks, Eared Grebes in breeding plumage, Prairie Falcons making a nest, and singing Canyon Wrens.
