At Prospect Park 3 Field sparrows (2 at Maryland Monument and 1 at Wellhouse dirt pile, hanging out with the continuing Lincoln’s Sparrow) and a Northern Waterthrush (across Wellhouse) while the Botanic Garden exhibited an Osprey and 5 White-crowned Sparrows (Native Grasses) and about 300 Common Grackles in the southern under construction area. Hermit Thrushes and Song Sparrows helped train my arm muscles, binocular up, down, up, down, right, left, focus, behind…while looking for missing Chipping Sparrow lores really tired me out. Best,
