Swallow it

Ever try to photograph a torpedo?
Finally, tree swallows at rest.

An ordinary day

Million dollar townhouse, NO pigeons wanted. But pigeons don't speak this language, pigeon spikes for naught.
Even dummy raptors don't scare them away.
Fine, a redstart near 69th street
Delicious dandelion seeds for the finch
Immature pigeon... long beak
Grungy feathers and toes from sitting in filthy nest
Don't look at me. I'm not your mother.

A bit of flirting

Redbelly woodpecker basking in sun. I was worried about heat stroke.
Isn't it a bit late for thinking about a nest?
Much easier housing.

Geometry

Totally illogical. Nest building?
                                                 The female got it right. Stick to leaves.
