Yellow Warbler, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
A gorgeous morning at the CRP [though the vandalism at the property continues--fireworks residue littering the paths and a tree swallow box opened up]. Six or eight young barn swallows assembled on the western edge, waiting to be fed. Cool to see, though a little feeling of dread, as I knew I'd get attacked as I walked by. (I was right).
Elsewhere, a little bit of standing and watching for rustles in the foliage revealed orioles, blue-gray gnatcatchers, warbling vireo and yellow warbler children begging.
