There was plenty of bird song at Joe Dancer Park this morning: tanager, robin, Song Sparrow, Bewick’s Wren, grosbeak.   And the robins were in their most aggressive mode, chasing one another.  When the two dogs and I wandered into the riverside woods at least four adult robins screeched and scolded and flew about as if we’d stolen their eggs.  Asd we moved on down the trail, they did not tail us, but continued to remonstrate and fustigate at our rear.

Some birds play hard to get–goldfinch at top of a tall tree, back lit;  grosbeak buried in the twigs and I couldn’t ID the bird without binocs so depended on my camera; swifts circling over our house, blurs aloft.
