Meadow birds

I woke up early this morning to focus on breeding birds (central Ontario is a great place to live because of the diversity of breeding birds). At about 6:30am it started raining, so I killed time by driving around checking out other future potential photo locations. As soon as the rain stopped, bird activity picked up significantly and I photographed these meadow species.
