Song Sparrow, Gulls, Eagles

The lake is teeming with gulls at the moment. They're mostly ring-billed, of course, but there are a few herring gulls mixed in here and there. I love it when we get the flocks of migrating gulls stopping over on their way north. They're so boisterous -- I just love to watch and listen to them "sing".

It's also been a couple days since I saw my first song sparrow of the year. I've only ever seen one at a time, but I suspect there are couple hanging out in the reeds and grasses along the banks. Soon they'll be joined by many others, I'm sure.

On Thursday, a group of 3 bald eagles soared over the park. I was hoping they might stop for a snack at the lake, but alas, they flew right on by.
