April 2015 Swallows, etc.
Swallows are difficult to photograph! They are small, only 5 to 6 inches long. Their flight is rapid and erratic. And catching one perched is difficult, since when they do land they usually don’t sit still for long. However, with some luck I was finally able to get a decent look at three that we see here in April–Barn, Tree and Northern Rough-winged swallows.
Spring migration is on and I saw a pair of birds that I hadn’t seen in a couple of years–a Solitary sandpiper and an Eastern kingbird.
Then there were a couple of the local raptors, and other regulars.
And an “in your face” Brown thrasher!
Finally, a few bird pictures that to me look more like paintings than photographs.
