Viceroy, your post 251, I'd say a male Eastern Meadowlark. They sing like crazy! And the 2nd bird (after the osprey) is a Tree Swallow.

This is Peregrine mating season, so we're getting busy checking up on them. This is Gleig, hatched in Hamilton, Ontario, waiting for her mate, Diamante, hatched in Rochester, to deliver lunch. They nest at Central Terminal, in a box provided by the DEC.

No pictures (I was driving at the time), but I saw a kestrel yesterday here on Long Island. Made me very happy to see an early spring migrant!

I had an adult bald eagle fly very low over my head as I left the doctor's office yesterday. I was so excited and no one was around to enjoy it with me! And the oddest thing is, I was in a very residential neighborhood next to a busy road.
