Six Mile Run, May 26th

A quick hour-and-a-bit around the main field trails (east of the parking lot) before work. Three male Willow Flycatchers (one on marginal territory but the most active singer), two Orchard Oriole males (one first spring), two or three singing Grasshopper Sparrow males were the highlights of this trip and not coincidentally also year birds. Otherwise a worthwhile but totally predictable list of species. The biggest miss was Indigo Bunting, neither seen nor heard.
