    I sure have been missing some great bird photos, not been around for awhile.
    Did capture this Barn Swallow this morning.

    Vulture Visit

    Well, I haven't been lucky enough to find nesting hawks around here but I did see this Turkey Vulture, along with about a dozen of his closest friends. They were checking out the pickings along the riverbank after some recent violent storms.

    Rich, great swallow shot.

    Falconest, I love watching turkey vultures flying, but they are certainly ugly in person.

    Yep, they have a face that not even a mother could love, and table manners to match.

    Rich,

    Interesting pose on the eagle. Just sunning himself or getting ready to fly?

    It was sunning itself, from this angle it just looked unusual. I have not seen one sun itself
    before, but I never get a whole lot of oppotunity to watch them either. Have another one on my flickr
    page, more traditional pose.

    Clear for landing!

    Shot of a Heron coming in to a landing on the Chenango R. He(?) he was moving from another position on the river. Love the flight posture and reflection.

    Lucky manual focus grab as this eagle passed overhead at the Ninilchik Scenic Overlook.
