Easter Morning Fallout

Tree Swallows, Charles River Peninsula, Needham, MA
Migrants galore this morning--dozens of robins on the meadow, a couple of tail flipping palm warblers on the forest edge, and even more tree swallows and bluebirds, if that can be believed.

 Joining our kestrel visitor on the shagbark hickory--a half dozen red-winged blackbirds, initially distressed when it flew in but perfectly comfortable to share the tree when they saw who it was.

And  distributed throughout the property--colorful plastic eggs.
Where did they come from?
Plastic birds?

Honestly, I hope whoever did this is going to do tick checks after the egg hunt. Some of the eggs are quite deep in the field.  And I really hope the kids don't stumble across the recently deceased cottontail in the brush off the parking lot....
