Actually I was on the deck setting up for tomorrow when the first one suddenly peeked out and flew straight toward me. My wife was on the deck with me and the bird nearly landed on her! It actually landed on the railing, not more than 2 feet from her. She stood there perfectly still for more than 10 minutes while it assessed the situation, then it flew down to a Japanese maple tree where a robin has its nest, and was attacked by the robin-- But that's another story.
The first shot is of Number four, taken with camera one, and the next four shots are of Number five, taken with camera two. (I got pictures of all five departures but some are better than others).
