Like four hours apart, two days apart, and not many birds. This was the view from way across the Conowingo Dam in Maryland on Thanksgiving weekend. Water gushed from the spillways and turbines at the dam and the eagles could not see the fish. What fish they could see were on the other side ofContinue reading “Conowingo Dam Eagles and Project Feeder Watch”
In contrast to watching outside in the cold…with gloves…hat…heavy coat…warm socks… I get to watch from inside a warm room. Most pictures were taken through a window. I finally got a picture of the kingfisher!! I’ve been trying for over two years. Hope this is a fish crow. Sure sounded like one.
I went back to the Susquehanna River to see these great eagles. Beautiful weather, nice people, great action.

One had deformed legs and there was no way it could competeContinue reading “Animal Behavior and Conservation Connections LLC Show”
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.
After ten years I finally have a desire to visit the World Trade Center site. Here are pictures of what the area around Ground Zero looks like today. On this day ten years ago, from far away you could see the wind swirling the ash high into the sky. I have always felt that ashContinue reading “Tribute”
