Saw my first of year BARN SWALLOW and RUSTY BLACKBIRD this morning. 44 species in all. No Warblers...yet...Also saw some very unusual species for the CF for this time of year--I've marked those with a * on the list below.

Enjoy the spring migration! 

(Thanks, Rob; you saw some unbelievable birds!)
