Curious Birders

Bill Wingell shot this delightful photograph of a cadre of birders on the steps of the county court house in downtown Binghamton, New York, as they scoped out a Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus). Birders are a curious lot, are we not? You just have to wonder what passersby unfamiliar with the customs of the birding tribe must think when they see such a gathering. And what, pray tell, must the birds think of such spectacles? This would make for a great photo-caption contest.
