eagle

Spotted near bridge in Baldwinsville, NY, on the way back from Beaver Lake. It was really difficult to get a steady photo on the bridge with cars going by.

hawk

I’ve been watching this red-tailed hawk for over a week, hoping to get a good shot of him. Today I chased him from pole to pole, and took the photo from the car. Maybe next time I can get an action shot.140924_6098


strange bird

Not sure, but the heat seems to have frozen this bird. He was standing very still at the train station platform, with a sumac berry in his mouth. Cedar waxwing. He stayed there even as the train arrived.

ice

Ice fishing doesn’t look like a lot of fun. A man told me the ice is 2 feet thick. It’s above 40 degrees and sunny today. The other two fellows each had only a bucket with them. – At Oneida Lake.

grouse

At last I finally meet the famous ruffed grouse of Beaver Lake! He’s not a shy bird; he jumped onto my ski pole.
Here’s some more about ruffed grouses.

Geese

Chickens at Abbott Farms. Then a cold Beaver Lake run. The lake and sky were full of geese. Very noisy.
