Jan Fry-Johnson asked me to send this to the list-serve because she can?t. The following are her observations. Saturday, March 20th: She saw ?two pairs of Peregrine Falcons above the parking lot at West End Assembly of God.? (Jan has seen the falcons downtown.) Two of the birds were chasing each other as if one was defending territory. Jan thought one pair might try to nest under the Willey Bridge. She asked others to let her know if they saw Peregrines on the Willey Bridge, 393-0463. Sunday, March 21st: At Bryan Park, she saw two American Kestrels together. One had a snake in its talon and the pair was seen in the meadow area of the park. These are my observations: Saturday, March 20th: Shelter Cove parking area, Wood Lake, Rte, 360, 8-9:30 am. Two Canada geese mated in front of several cub scouts and their dads!(Those naughty birds!) An adult Bald Eagle was seen circling above and moving towards the water. Twelve coots were observed on the far side of the water. Two Phoebes were flying back and forth in front of a building. Wetlands 10:45-12:00: The Widgeon is still on the pond while two separate groups of yellow-rumped warblers moved through the understory. Darbytown Road, east of 295 near a swamp, 4-6 pm: Barred Owl calling, Downy, Hairy, Pileated woodpeckers seen and heard. A female Hairy Woodpecker worked for several minutes on a dead snag. On Saturday, March 20th at 42nd Street and Reedy Creek, the water monitoring group witnessed two Red-tailed Hawks mating (info from Robin Ruth). Last but not least: Birders wanted for 13.5 acre farm off Darbytown Road. House and barn built around 1900. Elderly couple wants to sell to birder. For more info, call 270-5365.
