I went across the beach to the river side and found a couple of terns dive bombing the river and coming back up, then doing it again.
I walked up the beach following the river to railway bridge. The swallows were gathering under the bridge, probably searching for nesting spots above the river.
Once you pass under the bridge you are coming around to the marsh area where there are always fishermen waiting to snag the catch of the day. I found a spot by the marsh and sat quietly until a Red Winged Blackbird came by to see what I was doing.
He shouted out a few "SKREEEE" noises and a couple of other blackbirds shouted back. He kept an eye on me to make sure I was staying put. While we enjoyed the afternoon sun, three swans came flying over.
One of the swans landed and decided to go for a swim around the marsh.
There were many birds enjoying the first unofficial weekend of summer, and I enjoyed being there to capture the all the fun!
