Early May Songsters

Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
A full chorus of expert songsters now fills the Charles River Peninsula with music. Two battling male orchard orioles provide the most interesting sounds right now
but there is a wealth of other talent on display. A northern waterthrush, for example, was singing loud and often today. I've compiled some clips, starting with a catbird, in the video below:

After the CRP, I parked at Nahanton Park in Newton and walked over to Cutler (where the wood thrushes and common yellowthroats are already singing). The field sparrow was presiding over the scrubby field near Nahanton's upper parking lot.
