Bring in some wind, snow, low tide, lots of fish and extremely cold weather. The eagles have moved to the Hudson River in big numbers now. This is just in time for Teatown Lake Reservation’s Hudson River EagleFest.
There is a fish under all these eagles
Our resident family
So close no scope needed

The eagles are arriving. The ice is forming on the Hudson. We had the first of our SteamBoat Dock Photo Club meetings today, LOL!! Photo Corner is ready and waiting in Verplanck. The White House Tree is hosting fish hors d’oeuvres.
Anyone know a good colorist?
Hey, I’m talking to you!
I see another fish over there
There were five eagles in the eagle tree at the Croton Point Nature Center this morning! Now that is a happy event. Saw Mill River Audubon’s Project FeederWatch at the nature center continues again this year.
Croton Point Park is where your eagle dreams come true. The visiting birds arrived early this year. And they are quite used to people and cars.

Of course the feeder birds are happy for the winter food.

A passing migrant checks me out at the Croton Point Nature Center. This resident kestrel was hunting with friends. Our resident peregrine at Stateline Lookout in NJ is keeping the riff raff away.

Don Edwards Wildlife Refuge in Alviso is amazing!
It was hard to tell that the American white pelican might be endangered. This youngster was right in front of me.

Wouldn’t be Alviso without the black necked stilts. The other may be a dowitcher?
A Sora!! I saw the post on ebird and there it was in the slough.
This is one of the sloughs.
Westchester County, NY is a paradise for birders and photographers.

Just started going on these great bird Monday morning walks with Anne Swaim! Check out Muscoot Farm and Rockefeller State Park Preserve. The birds were waiting for us. Note: Not just For the Birds.
