  50. Neat pictures! I don't think of robins as river birds but that one looks fearless.

    ReplyDelete
  51. The wood duck looks so funny and out of place popping up next to the Little Blue Heron, and so comical. I like the downy woodpecker against the sky, too.

  52. Very nice herons - but I do like the photo-boombing wood duck.
