Song Sparrow. Today was the day of the annual field trip to Oatka Creek Park by the Rochester Birding Association.
. The only easy way to tell many flycatchers apart is from their calls. Fortunately, this one sang out and made the ID a snap.
. A poor picture, but my only one before the bird left the area. My friend Dana Kalir was on the trip, too, and got a much better picture here: https://picasaweb.google.com/107384188182150062844/RBAFieldTripAtOatka#5880540682150513042 .
. This bird is carrying food for the nestlings in its nearby nest.
