Everything But the Wheatear

All the serious birders on the east coast were at the Croton Train Station Boat Ramp a few weeks ago getting a look at the very rare wheatear.  I saw mention of it, but never took the five minute trip to see it.

I did manage to photograph my usual subjects.

This flicker was looking over his family. He is in the red tailed hawk

Here is the flicker family at Croton Point Park.

Sparrow family grooming in my dogwood bush.

This young woodpecker is about the size of a red bellied, but has the markings of a downy.
