I went to Forks of the Credit Park hoping to find the Bluebirds that I saw here in spring.
No sign of them though at least one of their boxes had occupants.
Many people put out boxes hoping to attract bluebirds and end up with House Wrens instead.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
The Clay-coloured Sparrow is not common in our area but I did find some.
Field Sparrows were also about:
I heard their drink-your-teeee call throughout my visit. The rufous sides identify this as an Eastern Towhee.
The flower that smiles to-day
All that we wish to stay
Tempts and then flies.
What is this world’s delight?
Lightning that mocks the night,
Brief even as bright. – Percy Shelley (1792 – 1823)
