Spring at Croton

Spring birds are everywhere doing their Spring Thing.  Plus, a few of the residents are back in action.

The cowbirds didn't disturb this chipmunk at all.  They are tracking a female cowbird.

Looks Like Audubon

I went to Audubon’s Aviary: Parts Unknown at the NY Historical Society.  And we put up a Looks Like Audubon exhibit at the Croton Point Nature Center.  I thought I would post some of my lookalikes here.

Audubon hated black backed gulls so he painted one with a damaged wing.  Unfortunately this one had a broken wing at the Croton Boat Ramp last month.  I don't know what happened to it.  I took the photograph before I learned the Audubon story.
