June 19, 2013: Dickcissel

This male Dickcissel was found on Sunday (16th) along the Upland Trail, just west of Jensen Pond.  Dickcissels are one of the last species to arrive in Spring.  This year, I recorded the first one on 29 May.  Right now, they are quite vocal along the Upland Trail, SW corner of the Park, and along the north side.  They are usually heard (dick, dick, dickcissel) before being observed.  They do nest at the Park. 6/16/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
