I went to Artemesia yesterday, as I like to do on weekends. I really don’t like the weekday traffic.
It wasn’t much of a day; windy, cold, and no cooperation from the birds. Most remained quite distant, laughing at me.
I did Bombay Hook today, and it was better, but not by much. We need some migrating birds.
This Muskrat is showing us his tail.
A Black Duck-Mallard hybrid. A first for me.
I saw only a few Gadwalls.
Three large flocks of Snow Geese flew overhead.
This Double Crested Cormorant was at Bombay Hook.
This Great Blue Heron was fishing at dawn.
A pair of Northern Pintails.
I found only a few Northern Shovelers.
I found this Cooper’s Hawk at Artemesia.
