Marine Park

Marine Park in Brooklyn was the third place we stopped at during the LSNY field trip. We found our target bird, a Red-headed Woodpecker. The Hooded Mergansers were at the Salt Marsh nature Center at Marine Park.

Floyd Bennett Field

The second stop on Saturday’s LSNY trip was to Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. The kestrel hovered in place over the meadow. You’ll have to take my word for it that the small lump in the tree is a Bald Eagle’s nest with the bird.

Chisholm SP

A Linnaean NY field trip on Saturday March 18. We spent all day at three locations along the shores of Brooklyn. The first stop was at Shirley Chisholm State Park. More to come…

The song sparrow who held on tight to a wildly swaying branch and the screaming oystercatchers made me laugh.

Roosevelt Island South

After the Canada geese is a photograph of a root. There is a row of trees that sent out roots from the path into the lawn (seen in the picture with the geese). It is a very curious thing. There must be more water in the lawn for them.

Roosevelt Island Doors

The first one is a door in Manhattan seen just before going to the tram to Roosevelt Island. The other two are on Roosevelt Island.

Roosevelt Island North

The Octagon is just before Lighthouse Park at the northern tip of Roosevelt Island. The second picture is a view inside looking up at the dome. I enhanced the skies in some of these.
