Cold snap equals bird movement

Last night's cold snap obviously moved birds. This morning where I entered Prospect park at 16th street and PPSouthwest, a large flock of WHITE THROATED SPARROWS in jittery action moved quickly along the lawn towards the hill. On the ball fields in the vicinity of field 7  a much smaller flock comprised of CHIPPING SPARROWS.

Unfortunately its a Monday workday....(DRAT!)
