Project Feeder Watch continues until April 1. The leaves have sprouted on the trees and bushes and the red winged blackbirds have found mates. My Carolina wrens have taken up housekeeping in my barn and the red tails are taking turns incubating. The red bellied woodpecker looks spectacular. And a mockingbird has to decide ifContinue reading “Spring Is Almost Here”
Saw Mill River Audubon’s Croton Point Nature Center Project Feeder Watch continues. I did make it to a few other sites along the river, but the action remains at the park. Our local eagles are still around, but the males are really the only ones fishing. Our red tail hawk is by himself for awhileContinue reading “March Comes In Like A Lamb”
The weather remained spectacular for February along the Hudson River. I was fortunate to have caught a few eagles, mockingbird, flock of red winged blackbirds with the first female, and a cowbird with mates. Plus, my local red tail ambassador continued to pose for ‘his’ adoring public.
The Lower Hudson River is an incredible place to live. Project FeederWatch continues at Croton Point Nature Center and the eagles are still around. This year spring has come very early.
Our local eagles got the emails encouraging them to attend Teatown Lake Reservation’s Hudson River EagleFest. The day started with four eagles perched quite near the main tents. It continued with constant fly overs at the Croton Boat Ramp. It ended with our local resident eagles flying over the live raptor demonstrations at the endContinue reading “Hudson River EagleFest”

My volunteer duties continue at the Croton Point Park Nature Center on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The regular visitors helped themselves to breakfast. One highlight was that the white throated sparrow now has friends. The junco flock has settled in. Eagles continue to land in the tree on the north point.
I had the lovely vision of seven eagles soaring above me at the Croton Point Park Nature Center. What a great way to start the new year, albeit a little bit early. Along with the eagles, the usual birds were there.
Saw Mill River Audubon and Croton Nature Center Project FeederWatch continues. I’m still waiting for the eagles to come. Hopefully it will be soon. In the meantime enjoy the pictures.
The weather was glorious and the birds enjoyed themselves. Every bird except the peregrine falcon was at the bird feeders at the nature center. The peregrine was guarding the park at the entrance. She appears to have a green and black band. Could be from New York or New Jersey. Couldn’t read the numbers, darn.
