The Eagles Have Landed

They are here now.  Croton resident eagles have to share their space.

Red Headed Woodpecker in Sleepy Hollow

Got a text from Charlie and Karolyn that there were two red-headed woodpeckers at Kingsland Point Park.  I was just over the MTA tracks in DeVries Park so I immediately took off.  This happens to be the same woodpecker enjoying a few different meal courses in the park.  It seems we have a red-headed woodpecker explosion here.  We were all looking for a snowy owl close to home.

Red Tail Hunts at Croton

While on my search for a snowy owl, I thought I would try the Croton ‘Meadow.’  I didn’t see an owl, but our resident red tail was in her favorite spot by the road.  She thought she had something on her first try, but apparently not.  She tried again as the smaller birds took cover.
