BHCL Bird of the Day: Sparrow

The skies looked  very threatening at lunch time today, but I managed to squeeze in a hike at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land without any rain.

Sparrows were the theme of the day:  House Sparrows, a Field Sparrow, Chipping Sparrows, Song Sparrows, and Savannah Sparrows all made an appearance.

Not one to be able to stick to a theme, I have to include this beautiful Red-Winged Blackbird, working hard to attract a mate.

Also, back at home earlier in the day, I had another migrating Pine Warbler visit my suet feeder.  He paused briefly on the wire before taking flight again.  I was lucky to catch him, and just look at that bright color!

I also saw my first woodchuck of the year in my yard today.  They are no friend to the garden.

After work, I thought I'd head down to Stony Brook to take a walk.  It was pretty quiet bird-wise, and pretty busy bug-wise, but I still enjoyed it.  The sunset was pretty, too!
