Babies babies everywhere

This morning was a little bit slow in the park, but a few highlights were as follows: 2 Northern Waterthrushes (1 in Strawberry Fields, 1 at Upper Lobe), 1 Am. Redstart near the Gill, 1 Common Yellowthroat (SF), an Eastern Kingbird and a Warbling Vireo at Hernshead, 2 Baltimore Orioles (1 adult at Hernshead and 1 young bird in Tupelo Field), and 1 very early White-throated Sparrow hopping along the cement pathway near the Gill. In the cuteness department, there was a young Mockingbird foraging with its parent at the Castle, and there were many young Cardinals, Robins, and Catbirds everywhere. Happy birding, Stephanie Seymour Englewood, NJ
