Sunday Report April 2, 06

Between Sat morning casual counting and the regular Sunday morning survey, I've had 47 species at Lake Leatherwood this weekend. I was very pleased to find a Spotted Sandpiper at its regular place on the sandy wading beach below the bath-house. The last Buffleheads must have left. I had the first Yellow-throated Vireo this morning, plus several each of Parulas, Black-and-Whites, and Louisiana Waterthrushes.

On the wildflower front, there were blooms on some Sorrel, wild Onions, Rue Anemone, Johnny Jump Ups, and Dandelions. Also the first bloom on a Buttercup. There were Spicebush, Tiger and Zebra Swallowtails flying, and the first Dragonfly, a big green one that I haven't figured out an ID on yet. I never got a really close look.

By the way, here's a URL for vulture information.
