Montrose Point, April 15-16, 2017

Many sparrows about. Some firsts, such as the Savannah Sparrow. Saw a beautiful Tree Swallow toward the shore on the 16th. No photo of the Tree Swallow because as soon as it perched, it was chased away by a Red-winged Blackbird.

Things we saw but did not get a good picture of: Brown-headed Cowbird, Mourning Doves (2), Chipping Sparrows, Brown Thrashers, and more.
