As I did about a week and a half ago (and described here) I recently took another stroll across a large chunk of Queens, during which I digiscoped the Double-crested Cormorant pictures I already shared.  Rather than bore you, dear 10,000 Birds reader, with a detailed account of the walk I figured I would just share some of my favorite pictures I got during my walk.  Below are the images.  I hope you like them…

Walking across Queens provides some of the best urban birding anywhere!
