Suspicious Bird
This fellow was checking out the Swan Feeding station hoping to find some left overs.
House Sparrow
There are a lot of sparrows in the trees at the east end of the park along the path.
This is a beautiful bird to see but a bit shy so we had to walk from tree to tree, halfway around the pond at the east end before I finally was able to get a shot. I've seen him in those trees half a dozen times this spring but could never get a picture.
