Blue Angels at Truxtun Park.

It’s been a slowish birding week, topped off by the Annual Blue Angels show yesterday. I’m lucky enough to live near a local park where I get good views of much of the show. The best place is from a boat, or nearer the river, but those spots are taken early, and very crowded.

I did manage a couple of decent birds this week as well. I got to CBEC and Terrapin this week, and both yielded a few images.
