On Friday I visited Central Winds Park. Migration is winding down, but are singing throughout the park. Breeding has begun! One singing male posed nicely for photos; I suspect these are some of my best photos of the species.

I was also surprised to see a young fledgling flying/hopping from tree branch to tree branch. It seems to me this is a little early to have fledglings out and and about. This little guy is still without all his flight feathers. He was able to fly short distances. I watched him for a few minutes but despite lots of begging calls I never saw a parent come to feed him.

Unfortunately, though, he was in a very shady area, so I had to shoot at 6400 ISO handheld without a flash–not the most ideal situation with my camera.
