St. Bernard's Seminary • June 7

I got out for a short walk along the Genesee River gorge behind the former St. Bernard's Seminary over lunch today. The highlight was having a Belted Kingfisher land nearby over a small pond behind the seminary. Since it chose to land near me, it had no concern with me raising my camera and taking a couple dozen pictures. I suspect it was more interested in the frogs in the pond. :-) (I've heard there may be small fish, too, but I've not seen any there.) A pair of Eastern Kingbirds landing in a nearby tree over the gorge was a second highlight.
