Ward Pound Ridge

Second post for June 4 trip covering other flora and fauna.

Ward Pound Ridge Butterflies

On June 4, 2022 we went with members of Linnaean Society of NY and the NYC Butterfly club led by Rick Cech to observe butterflies at Ward Pound Ridge, Westchester, NY. I got some help identifying these by some of the experts in the group but it is more than likely that I misidentified a few. Skippers are such a challenge!

The rest will be in the post after next.

Ward Pound Ridge and Keeler Tavern

On this cold a windy Easter Sunday we went for a drive to Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Westchester, New York. It was so cold we ate our picnic in the car. On the way back I chose a scenic route through Connecticut. we stopped at the Keeler Tavern in Ridgefield, CT. The entry fees to the museum where too much. I had a brief look at their lovely grounds.

Rye and Meadowlands

We had a lovely trip birding with the Linnaean Society of NY to Rye Playlands and the Meadowland Conservancy in Westchester County, New York. The highlights were a flock of Snow Buntings, a Cooper’s Hawk, and a White-Fronted Goose.
