The joys of local birding

I decided to do a little birding in my local patch this morning.  So I walked around the Oklahoma State University Arboretum for a couple hours.  Nothing spectacular was seen but I did get a couple FOS species including Lark Sparrow and Northern Parula.  Here are a couple of photographs from this morning's outing.

This was my FOS Lark Sparrow singing away in the morning light.

This little Lincoln's Sparrow was cooperative sitting atop a brush pile.
