Sometimes the nesting birds fly closer than I expect. I cut his wing off but still liked the image.
This paved path runs the length of Ravenswood Pond, home of the Skinny Tree, that I was watching when this GBH flew in. There is a lot of loose tree debris that is easy pickings and it’s just a few wing flaps back to the nest.
