Ann Mitchell's post reminded me to write that we saw three adult Osprey at Stewart Park over the Swan Pen pond, at around 1pm. One (female?) perched on a tree and kept calling while the other two circled overhead. Then they all flew off toward Hog Hole. There were also two Yellow-Rumped warblers by the swan pond. One Eared Grebe (basic plumage?) swam within binocular distance of the dock. Lots of Redheads, Scaup, Red-Necked Ducks etc, out further & not too clear with just binoculars. Hooded mergansers (2 male with 7 females), Buffleheads, grebes (horned?) in the inlet.
