What a strange day! The weather was absolutely gorgeous, so I went off to the park to gallivant about for a while. It was not particularly birdy. Except for the grosbeaks. They were everywhere, and not hiding! Oh, and brown thrashers. Also pretty much everywhere. Skulky though. At the upper lobe, I saw this lovely black-and-white, who actually flew almost into me, he was so close. I had to back up to get a picture.
