Craig Sandvig found two Ovenbirds today at Mel Deanna for the Castlegar Spring Count.

He says "I was in the dense larch stand right before the steep little hill before the ponds when I heard a song that peaked my interest: teacher-teacher-teacher. I waited for a few minutes to pinpoint where it was, but it was well concealed. I played it's song and it immediately came to investigate.
