On a lunch walk in the Bear Creek Greenbelt, I stopped by a House Wren nest above the pedestrian bridge:

Here’s one of the juveniles at the Red-tailed Hawk nest on Yale:

On the walk home, I saw a Song Sparrow singing in its usual place above the marsh:

Also in the marsh young Red-winged Blackbirds were begging for food:

Finally, a Double-crested Cormorant, a regular fixture on the south side of the creek near the pedestrian bridge:
