    Binghamton, Home of a couple of Minor league teams, B-Mets-Baseball, and B-Sens-Hockey.
    Most of my shots are taken arond the banks of the Chenango River. I live just a couple of hundred yards from the river. about a mile from it's confluence with the Susquehanna. We often see seagulls that have followed that river up from the Chesapeake bay. I also post in the Nikon DSLR Picture of the day thread, and the Insect thread. (When it is warm enuf to have bugs about. )

    Wink Guardian of Home

    Got these shots of a Male Tree Swallow as I was out walking the riverbank today, surveying the mess that high water has left on the banks of the Chenango. I saw this fellow perched atop a bird house near the Riverwalk. These guys almost never perch but are often flying above the water snagging bugs near the surface. Got lucky this time as he let me get to about 15 feet.

    Red face More Swallows

    Her a few more Swallow pics from yesterday's walk. It was cloudy so the colors are a bit muted but the differences between male and female are easily seen. I don't know what the yawning thing is, mating display, territorial or just a yawn.

    Came home one evening to find "the boys" had taken up temporary residence in my front garden. As the old song goes: "Kookaburra sitting in the old gum tree......." -- except it's a liquid amber, not a gum. These are the birds whose call is like a very loud cackling laugh. I think they're a type of kingfisher.

    Sir Les;
    That last one is great! They do look a lot like kingfishers, but it really depends on what they eat. Kingfishers are just that.
    We do sing that kookaburra song in the States.
