Many Blackpolls singing in the streets in Bristol yesterday, (Weds.). It's
so cool hearing these guys belting out that song among the shade trees. I
associate that song with mountaintops, the scent of spruce, and the high
valley of Steam Mill WMA in Walden, where they breed along the stream, along
with the occasional Black-backed Woodpecker pair.
