hikers seen from eliot tower

That's the Boston skyline off in the distance.

This shot was taken from Eliot tower. There were a lot of people out hiking this morning... I saw several groups or individuals just while I hung out at the tower.

Most hikers were friendly... One woman went out of her way to inform me that the bird chirping in the distance was a rufous-sided towhee. I was skeptical since it sounded a lot like the sparrows that I see outside my window in the morning. But it turns out that towhees are related to sparrows, so she may have known what she was talking about.
