Photo Gallery 2013 ~ ~ ~ I was very pleased to find four Eastern Bluebirds first thing in the morning at Mt. Peter Hawk Watch. ~ I took this shot a couple of weeks ago while looking for shorebirds at the Pine Island Turf Nursery. Seeing this Peregrine Falcon definitely got me pumped to start the Hawk Watch This Common Yellowthroat could not have been more cooperative, Morningside Park, 9/29/13. Here’s one more of the Pectoral Sandpiper, Morningside Park, 9/29/13. I have this as a juvenile Forster’s Tern. Oakdale NY 8/3/13. I love this shot – the reflections are nice and I like having three different species in the shot. Left to right, Baird’s Sandpiper, Lesser Yellowlegs, Least Sandpiper.
