Our yards have been busy with all our normal residents but we've also had a couple of spring migrants. Dee saw a male Indigo Bunting while I was at work and then she drew my attention to another new yard bird: Gray Catbird.
The Bald Eagles nesting near the Longwood detention pond are thriving. There are still two eaglets in the nest but one looks like it will be fledging soon.
On the CyFair campus one of the Black Vulture eggs has hatched.
The mother was lurking nearby but there was no sign of a chick.
All of the apartments in our Purple Martin complex are occupied.
I enjoy watching the Martins as they glide and swoop overhead, and also when they come in to land.
The Western Kingbirds which nest on the campus should be arriving any day now, and I'm hoping that the next couple of weeks will also produce some warblers and other spring migrants..
