When I finally gathered my stuff and continued on up to NU, I noticed the air was increasingly filled with a near cacophony of birdsong...probably a bunch of amorous he-birds simultaneously advertising their desire to mate.
but lately, bunches of red-winged black birds have taken over. I was fortunate to catch this one mid squawk...check out the way he puffed himself up and flared his wings...all part of the show.
And then of course there were the impatient screams of ubiquitous seagulls. I'm really proud of these next pictures by the way...it was a real challenge to get good mid-flight close ups!!!
There were also mellow warblings of robins, tweets and chirps from a bunch of little finchy-looking things, caws of mischievous crows, and a bunch of new songs from birds I'm as yet unable to name. Seems like the whole neighborhood's been catching spring fever! Me included...
