South Shore Playground parking area to Burkett Park

It's been about seven or eight years since I saw my last Blue Grosbeak at this park. I only saw this one for a few minutes before he flew off. Very colorful bird!

Temps in the mid 80's, partly cloudy and steady breeze.

Today, many birds were seen including a Blue Grosbeak (photo attached) as well as lots of lizards.  The vegetation is growing over many sections of the trails although there are a few areas that have been cut.  Caution is advised when on the trails because of snakes.  A new alert for bees has been posted as well.

NOTES
