Bird numbers building at the Charles River Peninsula
Great Blue Heron in a tree, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
The Charles River Peninsula was extremely birdy this morning, most notably mourning doves, robins, goldfinch, catbirds, phoebes, and bluebirds (hooray!). A sign of the abundance--not one but two yellow-throated vireos singing away.
Here's a cute (if grainy) phoebe sample.
It was nice to see a gnatcatcher (relatively uncommon sight here).
And the kingfisher continues to rule the powerlines over the river.
