A seagull soars through a cloudless sky.
It is a matter of perspective.
Can you find the bird?
I got too close to this Barn Swallow’s nest for its comfort, so it repeatedly swooped to warn me away. The first several swoops were quite startling because it silently and rapidly flew directly at me from in front, from the side, from behind. Within only a few feet of me it veered away as it gave (what I presume is) its alarm cry.
I captured this image as it veered, only a little farther from me than my arm can reach. A beautiful bird.
A Turkey Vulture rides the wind, just before a thunderstorm arrives.
This pair of wary Canada Goose allowed me to slowly approach within less than 10 meters.
It was good to see this Red-breasted Grosbeak at the feeder. I first heard its song on May 08, or just a week ago. Is it the same one as I saw last year? While it is impossible to say, I like to think that the one I saw last year survived fall and spring migration, and wintering where it did.
As I photographed this Common Grackle it suddenly took off, almost escaping my field of view.
This White-throated Sparrow has regularly visited the yard for several days now.
While reviewing photos I came across this photo of a Turkey Vulture tilting, riding the wind.
