Mitch Park this afternoon had a group of 3-4 Swainson's Thrushes moving along through some trees and low bushes.

Lately, there has been quite a wave of chipping sparrows and the arrival and a number of orange- crowned warblers.

In the rainy morning hours there was a Wilson's snipe on the athletic fields of the middle school on the NW corner of Covell and Kelly just adjacent to Mitch Park.

The resident Louisiana water thrush was heard along the creek south of the bridge.

Likewise the hummingbird has returned to the bridge area as of last week. It depends heavily on the red coral honeysuckle that grows at each end of the bridge. Initial observations of the gorget color suggest it may be a hybrid of black-chinned and ruby throat. More observations and good photos are needed to resolve this.
