Today jack and I went to Croton Point with the NY Audubon Society, on a bus trip. We were hoping to see eagles! Last year we went on our own and had a couple of spectacular moments of overhead fly-overs, surrounded by a few hours of freezing boredom. Maybe going with people who know what they are doing will be a better choice!
We spent quite a bit of time watching the eagles fly around, they were quite beautiful.
We also saw a couple of mute swans, but too far away to get even a half-decent picture.
We walked quite a ways around, and spent some time looking for an owl, but didn't find it. Dang, that would have been cool!
Oh, and there were ducks - ring-necked, common merganser, goldeneye. No good pictures, but I did see them through the scope. Whatever, I was pretty focused on the eagles! :-)
