There is a concrete block beside the Waterfront Trail upon which people put seeds for the 'fauna'. The cardinal let me get pretty close.

I think this was a song sparrow.
It was a very pleasant way to celebrate the day.
This morning, Skip and I ventured out again. Sadly, I left my camera back home so. of course, we saw some species really closely. Argh.
Today we saw yellow-rumped warblers, chipping sparrows, a brown creeper, ruby-crowned kinglets, a red-breasted nuthatch, three brown-headed cowbirds in the meadow, what we think was a field sparrow (a lifer for me), and a cormorant flying overhead.
