One of the Peregrine Falcons on top of City Hall. I loved where it was sitting so had to take the picture. The Rock Pigeons usually roost right around here and you will see dozens of the pigeons flee as one of the falcons uses this spot to perch and preen.
Picture of a Cedar Waxwing on top of a tombstone at the Millbury Cemetery this past Wednesday. This bird was perched near me and watching a feeding frenzy that was going on between Chimney Swifts, Barn Swallows and Tree Swallows. There were dozens of these birds flying in and out of the location all feeding on bugs. The Barn Swallows in particular had no problems buzzing right past my head and going after insects. What was even more interesting was there there were approx two dozens various Dragon Flies in that same area too all feeding off of the insects. I attempted some photos but all three species of bird were far too quick! Very interesting to watch though and am wondering what small bugs were there to cause such a frenzy as I couldn't see them.
And Eastern Kingbird at the Millbury bike path Tuesday morning. Not exactly a clean shot but I liked how I was able to pick up the white tail feathers which is a very good field mark for this bird.
Did some birding with Alan this past Sunday morning and saw a Willow Flycatcher at Sterling Peat. I have not seen one of these birds in close to a month now so it was a welcome site.
Also went to Wachusett Meadows and saw a Red-tailed Hawk getting mobbed by another hawk or perhaps Falcon. The birds were too far away for us to be able to get a good look at it for verification and I couldn't get any decent shots.
And lastly a handsome little bullfrog I found underneath my car this past Saturday. How it go there I don't know, but I just had to get its picture!
Take care all.
