A Nice Variety at Majors Park

There was a nice variety of birds at Majors Park yesterday, 24 species in all. For such a small park, I was surprised I did so well there.

My highlight was, perhaps, a Baltimore Oriole pair at their nest.  That was a treat!  A close second was some nice close up views of a pair of Field Sparrows.  I usually hear them without seeing them.  I may have even found where they are nesting too.

Just about when I reached my car to leave, a small flock of Cedar Waxwings flew up, followed by some American Goldfinches, a pair of Tree Swallows, a pair of House Finches, a Killdeer fly-by, and lastly, a solo Eastern Bluebird.  All within 2-3 minutes! Nice!

 Remarkable that you can catch those birds in such good pictures. They move so quickly.!
