Birds in DC

Visited DC and spotted some pretty typical birds for an urban area.  The house sparrows, of course, are a DC institution as they are everywhere, but what fun photographing this flock right across the street from the White House in Lafayette Park.  Got some great shots since they are accustomed to people and will come right up to you.

These mallards and this cormorant were spotted in the Constitution Garden pond on the way to the Vietnam Memorial.

Have you ever seen a black squirrel?  I never had until I saw this one in Lafayette Park!  What a beautiful silky coat. Not afraid of people either.

Last but not least, a variation of a rock dove I haven't seen before. Near the Washington Monument.
