On August 12, 2019 I was awed by the number of birds and their variety of colors that I was able to photograph. Later that same day I learned that the Endangered Species Act had been seriously weakened in preparation for its total elimination. I am reminded of my grandfather who raised fancy pigeons from the early 1900s until the mid century. He immigrated from Pennsylvania to California where he must have witnessed the masses of passenger pigeons flying through the skies. What will my great grandchildren be seeing in the mid twenty first century?
… and the living is easy. Bonnie’s Best from June, July and first of August:
This 2019 year has started off on the right birds for me. Featured image is an American Tree Sparrow in the freezing cold.
The “Bomb Blizzard” hit hard this year. The birds coped.
The Croton Train Station osprey got a bath. The red-tailed hawk also got a bath and apparently a small meal. And the Annsville eagle tried to get a meal.
Spring birds are everywhere doing their Spring Thing. Plus, a few of the residents are back in action.
… good picture of one of the three harriers at Croton Point Park. Yes, the eagles are still around in big numbers. The elusive brown creeper showed itself, too.
