Birds in Taylor Park during my visit on Monday, April 24, 2016 (0:50 hours, early morning)

Number of identified species:  15

Sunny, dew on the grass, lower 40s. I parked on Elmwood and followed my usual meandering path clockwise around the park. The wetland was about half full of water. Low spots were soft but not too soggy. There were small flags on the lower part of the field (the area that is slated to become a larger wetland).

Mallard  2     On grass by playground, flushed and flew east and over Ridgeland. Reflected sun made it hard to ID genders.

Ring-billed Gull  1     Flyover

Mourning Dove  2     Both on wetland fence, then one flew down to the water.

Downy Woodpecker  1

Black-capped Chickadee  1

Red-breasted Nuthatch  1     Heard calls from top of playground bald cypress. It flew west and later I saw it in the pines in the SW corner of the park.

American Robin  41     At one point there were 26 on the dew-covered soccer field. At least 8 sang.

European Starling  2

Chipping Sparrow  1     One sang near the playground and later one flew from that direction to the north end of the park.

Northern Cardinal  2     One sang in the park. I also heard at least 2 singing outside the count area.

Red-winged Blackbird  2     Male sang in wetland. Earlier I heard alarm calls from both wetland and north half of park.

Brown-headed Cowbird  3     Female on soccer field, tow others calling from treetops.

House Finch  2     Two sang (NW and SE sections of park).

American Goldfinch  2

House Sparrow  19     Two had a piece of trash = nesting material.
