I saw a hawk sitting on the pole holding up the volleyball net. A few minutes later it started to rain. I ducked under cover but he just sat there through the quick shower.
All of the usual birds were at Chesnut Park in early November, including the female common yellowthroat warbler.
Two different female American redstarts came out of hiding for a few seconds.
I think this is a female painted bunting, which is fairly rare to see at this park.
Other critters at the park including that alligator in the top picture with a huge fish hanging out of his mouth.
