Our First of Spring Cinnamon Teal, a rich cinnamon color in the pond and 6 White-throated Swifts flying overhead. Jim heard their distinctive notes first & was able to see the white below. According to Heindel's Inyo graphbook, the swifts are rare now, not becoming uncommon until late March. Very warm day. Also 5 Western Bluebirds were at East Dixon Ln Bridge yesterday with one Mt. Bluebird. Also present today off of Brockman Ln 8 more Western Bluebirds.
