I couldn't resist

American Robin on nest, Mount Auburn Cemetery

Dear reader, after all my sermonizing yesterday about staying local, I must confess I went to Mount Auburn Cemetery. The day was bright and warm, the warblers active, how could I resist? I told myself I was going for high quality photos (bright day and all). Of course, the warblers were all in the shade! D'oh.

Here's a grainy northern parula.

A Nashville warbler chewing on a cut-worm.

And a complete but welcome surprise, white-crowned sparrow.

Back in Needham, the savannah sparrows are everywhere.
