Grackles galore

I missed the Bluebirds that Suzette saw earlier today in the lower garden, but I did see, and hear singing, a couple of Fox Sparrows there.

Way over behind the Woodcock field, up against Kendrick St, there's a flooded area - a vernal pool, I suppose. There were a pair of Brown Creepers working the flooded trees there, along with Downy Woodpecker and White-breasted Nuthatch.

A large and noisy flock of Common Grackles invaded from the JCC. I estimate between 300 and 400 birds.

A couple of Tree Sparrows are still hanging around, and one chilly looking Tree Swallow was perched on a post in the upper garden.
