25 march 2012 – riverside parkway

Found a promising new birding location. It currently has some flooded fields that may hold shorebirds in migration depending on timing. At the end of the dead end road a private farm field can be scanned with a scope and the blackberry kack holds tons of sparrows.

I hung out for about 30 minutes. It was midday and overcast. There is a wooded area to the north that might hold some more woodland types in better conditions.
