And on Wednesday, I headed to Walla Walla Point Park, also in the early morning, to find signs of spring. First thing I saw was some PUD workers setting out fencing for the baseball fields. Then, along the trail, two small birds sat in a leafing tree, letting me get pretty close. At the office I looked up the kind of bird they were and found out they do migrate and show up in the area sometime in March. The information was verified by a few contacts we have to local birders.
