Today I biked out early and watched, at an Undisclosed Location, a couple birds singing.  Okay, it happens every day, but these particular birds were two that are only found in Madison during migration (they breed farther north) and whose songs I am not very familiar with:  Lincoln's Sparrow and Philadelphia Vireo.  Seeing these two vocalize was the high point (thus far) of my day, much more so than seeing Sandhill Cranes, a Great Horned Owl, a male Wood Duck and a male Eastern Bluebird. 

You don't have to get up at 4:20 to see/hear such you might find out this weekend on any of my guided, by-bike field trips.  Please drop me an email for
