While birding at Osbornedale State Park this morning I heard a bird song that struck me as odd. The tune was obviously that of a White-throated Sparrow, but it didn't sound right at all. A minute or two later it repeated, and I was fortunate enough to watch the bird sing it. The odd sound of it became clear, as it was sung by a male Eastern Towhee, in between its Twee notes.
Otherwise the only thing new was a Gray Catbird, which I had not had there yet this season. The stocked fishing pond on the other side of the hill had an Osprey and two Double-crested Cormorants, presumably enjoying the new bounty.
