Went to Central Park yesterday to checkout a new model of hearing aids to see how they work on bird calls. We were amused to see a young Red-tailed Hawk trying to catch squirrels at the feeders. No luck!
My main goal at E. B. Forsythe NWR was to see some Snow Geese – mission accomplished. We also saw a Snowy Owl way off in the marsh and an immature Bald Eagle. It is so relaxing to drive around the loop with my scope and camera. The weather on Sunday was shirtsleeve warm.
These are the ones I picked to submit for 6 topics to submit for the Optic Challenge. I don’t expect to win. I enjoy seeing what other people photograph. the event is freed and a lot of fun. There are lectures and prizes. You can sign up for the Optic All Stars online event by clicking here. Check it out – you might enjoy it. I always do. In June I won $100 to spend at B&H answering a quiz at the online social during Optic 2020.
After lunch at Glen Cove by the water we went to Bailey Arboretum, Long Island. A nice little woodsy place with a pond. Not many flowers though.
Our first outing to Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary, Bergen Co., NJ, in our new VW Jetta “James.”
