Late July at the Charles River Peninsula

Song Sparrow, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA

Bird families on display. Especially song sparrows. Into everything.

But also, red-winged blackbirds, cedar waxwings, and house wrens.

The property's the yellow-throated vireo continues. I don't know how successful the breeding was this year, but the male sings sporadically and I spotted him by eye for the first time in a while this morning. Also of interest, the tiny flycatcher below, which I initially took for a goldfinch. Only long distance shots. I assume willow but I didn't hear any singing to know for sure.
