Patterson Park Friday Bird Walk

A perfect day to look for summer residents at Patterson Park.  Chimney Swifts are still foraging overhead and it seemed like there was a Mockingbird at every turn.  Enjoy some photos from the walk.

Many Eastern Kingbirds were fluttering about the trees.

Another Muscovy Hybrid with one cute look-alike offspring.
And some more ducklings - this time from the local Mallards.
