Heavy Metal

These were taken on Jackson Street, near King Street Station. It's part of (what I assume are) the original iron railings along the sidwalks of the overpass.

I have no idea what kind of bird this guy is, but I thought he was pretty handsome and--an added bonus--not camera shy.

OK, I admit it: I tweaked this photo, but I like the result. This was a tree full of robins just off Admiral and 64th.
