Early spring is for the birds. Waterfowl move back through. Hawks come back up from South America and Mexico in droves at¬†predictable¬†spots, most taking advantage of thermals to save energy during migration (check out Derby Hill’s website for their spring hawk counts). Turkey’s start struttin’, gobbling at every little noise. And the little song birds return, bringing constant choruses back to the forests.
