Eastern Towhee. It was a glorious spring morning and the birds were singing in their finest May style!

Tree Swallow

Brown Thrasher. These birds are easy to find in May when they are singing with their distinctive mimicry. However, by June they become silent and are nearly impossible to find despite nesting in numbers throughout the park.
