I had a pair of blackbirds at Sandy Creek Park this morning that I suspect may have been Brewer's. The male was yellow-eyed and glossy with greenish on the back and the female was greyish-brown and appeared to have a dark eye. They flrw into the trees and I had to leave before I could get better looks. They were in the lot across from the beach lot

Hello Athens birders!

I hope you are all doing very well.

As most of you know I recently moved to Oklahoma. So, I wanted to let everyone know about the upcoming prairie chicken festival out here and invite you all to either come for the festival (which seems to be nearing capacity) or just plan a trip on your own to look for prairie chickens sometime. Peak season is late march to late April. I'd be happy to help with accommodations and certainly join if you can make it out.

Here is the website for the festival.

Take care,


Mitchell

There is a Louisiana Waterthrush singing here in Oglethorpe County this morning. It's the same day of March that one first showed up last year. Earlier in the week there was a Blue Headed Vireo and a Western Palm Warbler.

That GREAT EGRET has been since at least February 6th. When I first saw white, I was really hoping for a $n0w G00$e.

Carolina Wrens have started building a nest in a flower pot on my little porch. I know they start early but this is crazy!

Thanks Ed- wish I could go but I’ll be out of town; perhaps the next time it sounds like a fun place.

We would leave from Athens around 6AM and arrive at Phinizy Swamp around 8AM. We will bird there and then go to the Boral Brick Yard Ponds afterward. We will likely not return to Athens until 4-5PM.
