Dave Lord just found the season's first Lousiana Waterthrush at, where else, Sunset Bridge in Belleplain. Woo-hooo! Looks like my prediction that LOWA would arrive by Sunday was off by a few days. If I remember correctly, LOWA arrived on March 31 last year, too.
Speaking of predictions, weather and radar guru Dave La Puma's most recent blog makes for an interesting read - crazy weather patterns with potential for vagrants from both north and south, as well as arriving peep and other shorebirds as soon as Thursday. We'll keep you posted, of course.
