Today's visit to Forest Lawn and Sinking Ponds brought some nice sightings and a few more first-of-years.

Warblers are starting to come in at Forest Lawn in greater numbers and I was thrilled to see my FOY Northern Parula, Pine, and Black-and-white Warblers.

Later, seeing an Osprey hunting over Sinking Ponds was fun!  It's the first time I've ever seen an Osprey at this spot. An Eastern Kingbird posed very nicely and I got a few nice shots of that guy!
