We took the river trail from Buford Park. The park had a mixed flock with Black-throated Gray dominance, working the oaks. We were pleasantly surprised by this — and later surprised by a Great Horned Owl taking off. The Steller’s Jay was the bird of the morning, constantly flying and gliding across open spaces.
