New migratory birds are arriving daily in the Adirondacks as the warm temperatures and southerly winds take over.

Some recent sightings of mine are:

Several students tell me of Ospreys hunting for fish, common loons calling on Lower St Regis, American woodcocks “peenting,” and hermit thrush singing near campus. Spring is definitely the best season!
