A quick tour through the Batavia Waste Water Treatment Plant brought a few nice birds.

Eastern Kingbirds must have had a good nesting season here as I so no less than FIVE of these birds all close to one another near or on the fence. They seemed to be following me as I slowly drove around the ponds too!

A young Northern Mockingbird gave some nice views as did one, lone Bonaparte's Gull who mixed in with many Ring-billed Gulls.
