Henslow's Sparrow - 01 Jul 2017

While Robin went for a run I decided to hang out and look for the Henslow's Sparrow that appears to be nesting at Willow Metropark's Washago Pond field just west of the far parking lot. Not more than two minutes after setting up the tripod did the sparrow appear atop its usual perch. It was late in the morning and the winds were blowing, so focusing was difficult. But it stayed for several minutes before flying out farther into the field.

I then walked over to the north side of the field where a pair of Great Crested Flycatchers were singing. I managed to see them fly off, but was unable to get any pics.  So, I turned the scope on the gorgeous little Grass Pinks at my feet.
