I decided to take a little walk through the park after classes today and here is what I saw:
Tree Swallows everywhere
Mockingbirds - these little devils keep tricking me on my quest to see a Loggerhead Shrike :/
Eastern Towhee - a nice close up view
Eastern Meadowlark! - the best sighting of the day...I had to walk through a field of knee-high nettles (in flip flops) to flush it up into the air. His yellow breast was quite the spectacle on this drab, gray day.
I also saw some bluebirds, a great blue heron and a Northern Flicker on campus. Yay.
