I awoke this morning to a Chuck-wills-widow calling, which was not only the
first I have heard this spring, it was also a new yard bird. I only caught 1
bird while banding a Greenway Farm, but it was another FOS; Gray-cheeked
Thrush. Finally, through the whine of all the mosquitoes, I heard my first
Yellow-billed Cuckoo of the spring out there.
