I've been getting depressed lately because I don't feel our city does enough to make it appealing to our citizens and visitors. Today they changed my mind a bit when I decided to take a bike ride along the the Robert Moses. They now have bird houses set up along the river for tree swallows. These tiny metalic blue and white birds dart back and forth chasing bugs to eat along the river. It's quite fasinating to watch and quite difficult to photograph the little guys while they are flying so fast. Fortunately the winds sweep off the river and if you time it right you can catch them in a head wind and get that great shot. Today I got one.
