What a great day! The temperature is getting warmer, the days are longer, the song birds are singing ….and nesting!!

Just a reminder  to add a couple of extra minutes to your preflight this time of year for nesting birds.

A couple of years ago, one of our SJPA members flew over to Skagit on an errand and in less than an hour an enterprising Starling had built a nest under his cowling, on top of the engine. He  probably only found it because he noticed some fresh bird droppings when he got back to the plane. He also shudders to think of what a possible engine fire would have meant over the water.
