On the subject of birds (and other critters) seen for the first time this spring, Ted and Jenni Worden of Superior report spotting a pair of wood ducks in a small pond as they drove through the Superior Municipal Forest on Monday afternoon. A few feet down the road, they saw a porcupine. They also saw a large flock of hooded mergansers off of Park Point in Duluth. And they’ve seen turkey vultures flying over Thompson HIll for the past couple of weeks.
Thanks for your observations … what are the rest of you seeing? I’d love to hear about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures are welcome, too.
