13 May 2021 - A young redwinged blackbird at Overpeck County Park in northern New Jersey.

Young = white shoulder stripe

Male house sparrow, NOT in a parking lot or at an outdoor cafe table

15 May 2021 - A rare backyard visitor: rose-breasted grosbeak.
It seems to look at the resident mourning dove and ask, "So, what's the pose I should take?"

This pose.

20 May - two familiar birds: robin and house sparrow

It's spring, so here come the babies. A fledged starling...

...with a parent.

A flash of bright yellow: a male goldfinch
