Saturday, in The Park

I think it’s going to be busy like the Fourth of July.

The pond was very quite this morning with just the canada geese, a couple of mallards, and a few wood ducks. No mergansers, grebes, or teals.

The red-winged blackbirds and common grackles were plentiful, however, and making quite a bit of noise. Here’s a grackle showing off his iridescent blue head and bronze body in the bright sunlight. Perhaps that effect throws off my camera’s autofocus because all my images are a little out of focus.
