Sunday with water birds - February 19, 2012

In Manhattan, you're never more than several blocks from a river (either the East River or the Hudson). I had a hankering for water birds on Sunday so took a field trip to part of the East River walkway (still under renovation). The views were fantastic and birds were plentiful.

Ring-billed Gulls:

This gull looked pretty sleepy:
