Birded Louisville Park this morning. There was a pair of Blue Grosbeaks out in 
the open in a weedy lot on the right side of the road near the entrance. 

It was also a great place for swallows so close that no optics were needed! As 
we walked across the open areas of the park there were 20 to 30 swallows 
hunting insects and passing so close that one could hear the wing beats! Just 
magical. Great comparative looks at different species.
