Happy Earth Day 2014!

Happy Earth Day! I hope you can get out birding today, or otherwise enjoying our world! This morning I spent a few hours birding with the PSU Ornithology lab and we saw some newly-arrived migrants such as Green Herons, Chimney Swifts, and a Yellow-rumped Warbler. Here is a Common Raven I saw later, digging through some fresh mulch on the Penn State campus in State College! Feel free to share photos and stories in the comments about what you come across today if you can get outside!
