I love this time of year. The colors of the leaves and birds are especially glorious.
The birds are bulking up for a long winter’s nap, I think.
The falcon population in Rochester is growing. Here is Cadence, 2015 fledgling, who landed on the rail in front of us early Saturday morning. The Seneca Towers falcons are below.

Seneca Towers fledgling, one of two – quite the surprise this year
Eagles are still hanging out. This year’s crop of young will soon be making Croton Point Park their summer home.
The osprey young are getting a rather late start, but will be taking over the train station parking lot.
I discovered the Bronx Zoo!

There are still eagles around, but the north is calling.
Hard to tell it’s a new season. It is freezing.
Best day ever on the Hudson River
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

So close no scope needed
