We immediately saw an Eastern Bluebird just outside the birdhouse to the right of the trail just after the parking lot. It chased off a House Sparrow twice that was getting too close for comfort.
The above Indigo Bunting was out to torture us. We heard it singing and spotted it several times, nearly always in bad light, with the sun shining behind it. Look how close it was here, but no beautiful view of the brilliant coloring. Just a silhouette....

It was a nice start to a busy day full of sitting and behing indoors. It'll be nice to get back to a more normal schedule now that graduation has come and gone! Congratulations, Ashland High School class of 2014!
