Patterson Park Friday Bird Walk

Another nice walk through Patterson Park before the temperature climbed into the high 80's.

One highlight was a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron at the Boat Lake.

Robins were interested in this shrub - let us know if you can identify it!

On the boardwalk. We had several young birders this morning.
