Jim Williams has been watching birds and writing about their antics since before "Gilligan's Island" went into reruns. Join him for his unique insights, his everyday adventures and an open conversation about the birds in your back yard and beyond.
This is a spring of excesses. Too much weather. Too much cold. Too much rain. Birds in unusual numbers. Harris's Sparrows seen eight at a time, more in one yard I visited than all my previous sightings together. Scarlet Tanagers in multiples. Buntings of all sorts reported from all parts of the state. Warblers feeding at obersvers' feet. Duluth birders report Park Point sightings unlike any other year. We have passed the mark of normal.
