Chicago Area Birds

Thought I'd put some of the local bird pictures from Chicago here. Most of these are from the Chicago River inside the city. We are fortunate enough to have some great places for wildlife in the city (as counterintuitive as that seems)

First up a Red Tailed Hawk. I pretty much walked by this one when a man with a stroller asked me what the bird was across the river

Haven't been out a lot in the winter here, but we have a lot of birds down from Canada now, and a few old favorites. Here is a Male Belted Kingfisher I managed to catch. They are super small and fast, so I was happy to have gotten a decent picture of him in the air even (wish I'd had the shutter speed higher, but I'm just happy I got him in focus as he went zipping by!)
