Hi Peter,

Although it was a little cold and drizzly at times, we had a great walk today. Chellie Bowman brought one of her New School classes, and in total we had about 32 people.
There were lots of birds in the park almost everywhere we went. We saw several Common Grackles building nests. There were lots of a lots of Swamp Sparrows, Hermit Thrush, kinglets and a large flock of swallows.

Highlights included 2 Yellow-throated Warblers, Prairie Warbler, Brown Thrasher, Chimney Swift, 3 species of swallows, a Great-blue Heron carrying nesting material (we need to keep an eye on this bird), an Osprey with a large fish, several  Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, lots of Palm and Pine Warblers, and a Blue-headed Vireo.

Here's the list.
