Birds show signs of spring fever

BIRDWATCHING -- The ever-vigilant eyes of area birdwatchers are finding more to see every day.  Here's this week's report from Charles Swift in Moscow:
 
I had a smallish mixed flock of Bohemian and cedar waxwings on campus this morning. There might be more Bohemians around - there are several favored locations around campus that I haven't checked recently.
 
Also on Wednesday, the local pair of kestrels on the University of Idaho campus were copulating - presumably still pair bonding at this point but another sure sign of spring.
 
And with the lack of snow and mild temps, I bet there will be some early killdeer here on the Palouse any day.
