Wilkes-Barre urban birds
It has been a beautiful week and I've been walking to work and enjoying the result of raging testosterone in birds that causes the males to sit exposed and sing their hearts out. Crows are carrying sticks building nests for the past week and I saw a Song Sparrow carrying nesting material. The tree swallows aren't fighting over boxes and many seemed to have moved on. No swallows at the house gourd or the box on campus.
