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.
The red tail pair at Croton Point Park finally arrived at the Croton Point Nature Center together. They were after the newly arrived rat at the bird feeders. And of course they were after one of the 13 squirrels who frequent the feeders. By now, there are quite a few less squirrels. They are myContinue reading “Red Tails Together!”
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.

Red tail with a squirrel, my eagle pair, great blue heron, osprey kiting, geese walking on water, song sparrow, kingfisher, swans. It doesn’t get much better.
This is Owlbert, probably spelled Albert, a Eurasian eagle owl. My kindergarten students are listening to stories about owls and then retelling and writing their own. They enjoyed these pictures. I hope you do as well.
