Here is a bad picture of the raven, which was being mobbed by robins and orioles near the Samuel Morse monument, and then took off and flew south, chased by the mobbers.
Anther notable sighting was an eastern kingbird at the Valley Water.
The mallard duckling probably is about a week old, and given the turtle population at the Sylvan Water is living on borrowed time.
