Spring Arrivals

If you have an old moose antler in your garden, you might capture a photo like the one above! I got this photo a few years ago. The Fox Sparrow is an early migrant as they make their way back to their Canadian breeding grounds. This sparrow has a beautiful song.

Another early arriving bird is the Northern Saw-whet Owl. They are very vocal in the spring as they set up territories and call for mates. I took the above photo in southern AZ, but they are pretty easy to find and see up here right now. Here is a link to their tooting call: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Northern_Saw-whet_Owl/sounds
