Warming trend this weekend with hopes for more migrants-May 18, 2012

With warmer weather on the way perhaps more migrants will descend into the area. Sunday evening showers could provide a good day on Monday. Today, I had my first Connecticut Warbler of the year. A few Canada Warblers are in. The Darrow Bridge was a birding hotspot again this morning. Perhaps the bridge area won't be stripped the way the Rose Garden and other habitats have been decimated. Common Milkweed, a native plant has been removed from the Rose Garden (there are no roses there as well). Not only butterflies love the area, sparrows and other species utilized it.
