Heritage Park Birding

I decided to take a little walk through the park after classes today and here is what I saw:

Cedar Waxwing
Song Sparrows
Goldfinches galore
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
Brown Thrasher
Eastern Phoebe
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.
