[Tweeters] Getting My "Fill" of Song

Ok a horrible pun, but there was almost constantly a song in the air at the Fill today. Songsters included Song, White Crowned and Savannah (many) Sparrows, Yellow Rumped Warblers (many of both Myrtle and Audubon's forms), Common Yellowthroats (at least 3), American Goldfinches, House Finches, Marsh and Bewick's Wrens, Virginia Rails, Spotted Towhees, Anna's Hummingbirds, Red Winged Blackbirds, Black Capped Chickadees, Bushtits and Tree Swallows (is their chattering a song?).

I had visited hoping for a photo of a Cinnamon Teal. I have seen several Cinnamon's but had not been able to get a shot this Spring. I was about to give up when a beautiful drake and two hens swam out of cover in the SW corner of Southwest pond and posed briefly in the sunshine for a lovely photo shoot and did some bobbing courtship display before all 3 swam back into cover and...well I don't know what.
No Pipits but a beautiful afternoon filled with song.
