Hello all,This morning I saw two Eastern Phoebes in the Park. The first one was at Tupelo Meadow and the second one at the NW end of the Great Lawn. The bird at Tupelo appeared duller than the second, so I am pretty sure that it was not the same bird that had moved. At Maintenance Field there were about 10 Song Sparrows feeding on the grass.
