Flying Around

With my limited equipment (described on the “About” page of this blog), it is interesting to discover the number of feathered friends we have behind our apartment building along the Maumee River.

Here are a few visitors:

Well, perhaps these aren’t all feathered! 🙂

A scavenger hawk, a pigeon in full wing upswing, and herring gulls shared the sky with a “silver bird”.

Canada Geese are a common bird flying around the territory.

Grackles invade berry-bearing trees, and sometimes look like jet fighters in the air.

Gulls fly along the river in singles, pairs, and groups, sometimes dipping quite low over the bridge.

Pigeons that roost atop the pilings under the bridge fly a daily ritual around, under, and above the bridge, and to the nearby downtown Courthouse and back.

By far the most frequent flyers along the river are the various gulls.

Except for “silver-birded” humans, of course!
