Not realizing the Go! Marathon was weaving thru TGP this morning, I eventually found a way to park and was rewarded with a busy morning around the water feature, which looks very inviting now with the new native plants leafing out.   Notable was the large number of White-throated Sparrows (most singing!) and Ruby-crowned Kinglets.  There were four female and two male Purple Finch at the water together.  Interesting to see a family-type unit for the second time this week, having seen a group Thursday at Busch.  
Winter Wrens continue around the brush piles, and four Hermit Thrush worked around the leaves.  A male, female, and juvenile Yellow-bellied Sapsucker were seen on the same tree, another migrating family unit?  Northern Parula and many Yellow-rumped Warblers were vocalizing.  It was a beautiful Spring morning to be birding!
