The influx of spring birds is underway, and the avian population at Boomer Lake is growing.  Goose Island is readying for a new bumper crop of Canada Goslings.  The martin houses have been up for at least a few days and are populated.  Several pairs of Blue-winged Teals are in the area, and I am already looking forward to an exciting season.
