The first week of May photographer Dave Small ventured forth in search of Old Town area birds. “Although gasoline prices are encouraging me to give more thought to outing locations, I’m glad to have nearby trail systems like the ones in the University Forest and farm area and in Sunkhaze Meadows National Wildlife Refuge,” he said.That’s where these photos were taken, except the cardinal, that was in a neighbors dooryard.
