One (1) unidentified diving water bird.
Four (4) unidentified anseriformes (probably geese…white and grey with light red on necks…size similar to Canada Goose).
Twelve (12) Red-winged blackbird males (I hate them). [http://www.flickr.com/photos/vidular/2537109371/]
And some really crazy top-gun style flying sparrows/swifts/i dunno.
I find myself feeling a strange affection for common birds (with the exception of Red-winged Blackbirds and House Sparrows). Both the American Robin and chickens of all kinds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken) are two common birds that have a special place in my heart. The Robin’s call is so earnest. The chicken so noble.
