Song Sparrows

I went for a walk this morning and saw some Song Sparrows getting in to it along Etolin Street. The recording above is one singing in the Donnelley’s yard, it had been trading songs with another one across the street. I even saw them have a brief physical skirmish sort of in the middle of the road. It seems like there are quite a few more Song Sparrows along Etolin Street than in the immediate vicinity of my house. I suspect it’s because there is better habitat for them (in the form of more shrubs).

Down at the park I saw a Northern Pintail and a Black-bellied Plover. I didn’t find the Marbled Godwit I saw yesterday evening. I also heard at least one Golden-crowned Kinglet singing as well as a Pacific Wren and multiple Varied Thrushes.
