Hey folks --- During a break between work shifts this past Sunday. I biked out to Abbey Park, by Westhaven Drive, south of Witzel Av ( 4th Av). I had to listen twice and more to make sure I wasn't hearing things, yup, I had a Field Sparrow. Plus I had other nice standards, like chickadees, orioles, a least flycatcher, warbling vireo and otherwise a couple deer, a doe and buck, a young 8-pointer, with velvet included, which is a rare-ish sighting to me. In another note, my brother sent me a very interesting note that my sis-in-law and some friends witnessed on their lake. They actually watched an eagle attack and kill a great blue heron right in front of their property. How crazy is that? Has anyone ever heard of this kind of attack?
