Birds are a tremendous symbol of freedom. After all, what can be more free
than a wild creature that, by means of flight, can go nearly wherever it
Here are some of the bird pictures that I have taken at various places
over the last year.
Hawk on a Tower - Front Side
These pictures were taken in October, 1999 on a highway outside of Pittsburgh,
PA. I was foretunate enough to be a passenger in the car when I saw a bird
perching on a wireless phone tower near the road. (Closeups: FrontSide
The Bread Birds - 1 2
I was attending a military radio convention in California when I took these
pictures. Some bread leftover from lunch was (quite sensibly) left out for
the birds to eat. This, of course, brought all the birds in the area out,
including a sparrow who seemed intent on shaking crumbs everywhere.
