Great walk this morning at Hubbard Park. As is usual, the walk up to the castle was "infested" with red eyed vireo's, more than I could count. Best part of the walk was a rough wing swallow taking chunks of dog poop off the road at the dam, and using the chunks to build a nest behind a concrete barrier just up the road from the dam. Also found a blue grey gnatcatchers nest on the backend of Reservoir Rd.
