Hard to tell it’s a new season. It is freezing.
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.
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.
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.
Our young red-tails ask how you would like them to pose for pictures. Profile? Catching a rat? Dragging a snake?
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. Marshlands hairy woodpecker is catching some rays. This white-throated sparrow is the first sign that autumn has returned.
