18 May 2011 – no casualties, but two visitors

We had a line of storms come through last night around 2:00 am that I thought might have the chance to drop out some migrants.  As if on cue, there was something unusual at the NRC this morning: a Marsh Wren.  The bird was very much alive (perhaps a bit stunned), and I herded it away from the building toward a line of shrubs that would provide cover if it needed to stick around for a while.

Also, huddled at the base of one of the windows was a recently fledged Mourning Dove.  This bird too seemed to be in fine shape.
