Here are some more photos from yesterday of some spring birds.
Yellow-rumped Warblers are now common yard birds, and we often see them coming to our suet feeders right out our window, which is a lovely treat.
When my brother was in music lessons I had the opportunity to bike to a nearby park, Bois-des-Esprits, to see if there were any birds around.
As I was cycling I heard a Merlin, and saw a Northern Flicker (first of the year) and a Hermit Thrust (first of the year).
When at the park I cycled around the bike trails, got a little lost and got my bike a little muddy. There were some great birds though, such as a Cooper's Hawk which kept calling and flying around, Golden and Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Hermit Thrushes and Northern Flickers.
Because I was biking on rather rough trails, I didn't get too many photos, but here are a few of them:

Yesterday evening we returned to Oak Hammock Marsh to try and see the Eurasian Wigeon again. When we got there the flooded field the it and many other ducks were in was mostly empty. We weren't able to find it, but at least two others saw the Wigeon yesterday.
After we were unable to find the Eurasian Wigeon we went for a short walk at the marsh.
There were also a few Short-eared Owls flying around near the parking lot. Because it was already dusk we couldn't get good photos.
