11 A fledgling or juvenile Red-winged Blackbird Chick waiting for its parents to bring food to him. The picture is from this past summer and one of my outings. The bird has an interesting color sceam to there breast plate when they are that young.

31 This collection of insect pictures is from this year and are taken from some of the adventures that I've gone on in my area of NYS.

6 A Pigeon that I found on the River Walk in Down Town Binghamton. Him and his friends seamed happy with me taking there pictures. Kinda like they were posing for me. I find them to have a neat variety of color skeams and coloration in general.  A cool bird that with time will learn to trust you and eat out of your hand if you repeatedly go to the same place every day and offer them food. They will remember you and trust you if your nice to them basically.  I remember doing it as a kid in Johnson City as I was growing up. pigeon-0088pigeon-0033pigeon-0055
