Birding in Piedmont Park over the past few days has been very exciting. There is a small group of Blue-winged Teal on the Lake, and with them is a Northern Shoveler (pictures in checklist, I only realized it was a shoveler when looking through pictures). In the same area by the lake is a Green Heron and also a Baltimore Oriole, Great Crested Flycatcher and Swainson's Thrush, feeding with catbirds and robins on porcelain berries and Southern Magnolia arils. Elsewhere there are good chances to get warblers and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks.
