Yesterday I had 2 new birds for my yard in the Mt. Orange community, just west 
of Trenton in Gibson County. Neither was really that unexpected and both were 

The first was a Fish Crow that I heard and saw as I was home for lunch. I heard 
it in the distance at first and it kept getting closer, calling over & over, 
until it finally flew right over the yard. I've had fish crows in the past 
within just a few miles of my yard but this was the first for this location.

The second new bird was heard last night as I was feeding the new puppy. I 
heard in the distance the distinctive calling of a Barred Owl. I walked around 
to the front of the house and heard it calling a couple of more times. I've now 
had all 4 permanent resident owls for the yard list. I'd almost given up on 
getting a Barred because there is no bottomland near my house. There is however 
a big patch of woods not far away and this is where the owl was calling from.

These were yard birds 149 & 150, respectively.

Chipping Sparrows and Pine Warblers have begun singing consistently in the last 
2 days, Eastern Bluebirds are building nests and the female Purple Martins have 
finally arrived.

Good birding,
