This week was light on photos, so I will be brief. Biggest news is that I added three green birds, the best being Northern Harrier which I didn’t see last year.
The Maumee River Dam sports some impressive looking machinery. I am not sure if it actually does anything any more, but it sure makes a nice setting for gulls. A huge swarm was circling the area on Sunday, but I couldn’t pick out anything besides Ring-billeds.
While I still don’t have any Fox Sparrows this year, Fox Squirrels are plentiful. I stopped to take a portrait of this guy at Foster Park.
With a lack of anything else bird-related to talk about, I was going to post a photo of the meth lab I found while scouting a building this week and some associated political and social commentary to go along with it. But I deleted it. Instead, I will talk about how if politicians were birds, I would be voting for the Bohemian Waxwing running for president this year. He’s the one who can be found in a northern state, makes sure everyone in the flock gets a chance to eat, and in all honesty is a little bit flighty and eccentric and is something nobody expects to see. Discuss among yourselves.
