Birds #4, Flowers #1

Newly arrived/heard/seen: black-and-white warblers (May 2), black-throated green warblers (May 3), belted kingfisher, song sparrow. The ever-present ruffed grouse are still hanging around.

Spring wildflowers: our hillside is a carpet of bloodroot, wake robin (maroon trillium), and soon to be trout lilies, plus a few others I haven't yet worked out with my Newcomb's guide.
