Patience rewarded

I got to Nahanton Park at 8:40 this morning. Mary Lou was already there, and we decided that it wasn't very birdy. But I persisted. The upper garden revealed this attractive Field Sparrow. It looks like a different bird than the one I found at the lower garden a few days ago. 

Another boy scout project: This one is a "bug hotel." There's one at the lower garden, and this one on Woodcock Field. It looks like a piece of artwork by Louise Nevelson to me.

This beautiful male Eastern Towhee was certainly a nice surprise, at the soccer circle. 

An active group of American Tree Sparrows and Song Sparrows were working the reeds on the pond - just a little hard to photograph! And a beautiful raft of 17 Canada Geese were navigating the river. A productive morning after all!
