Crested Caracara showing well today at the Scott’s Corners Golf Course.

Following a brief visit to the Bashakill where my only new year bird this morning was a BROAD-WINGED HAWK, Arlene Borko and Lance Verderame and I all headed to the Scott’s Corners Golf Course to try to find them the CRESTED CARACARA! They were not disappointed. Congratulations to them both, it was not only a state bird, but a lifer for both of them. It gave me a chance to try for some new photos, which turned out better than Friday’s shots.

    Crested Caracara on Coleman Rd, Montgomery around 2:00 PM on Sunday. Perched in a tree for around 20 minutes, giving me the chance for these photos, then flew back in the direction of the Scott’s Corners Golf Course where it had been on Saturday.

    I am new to bird watching where I follow through with research. I am considering bird photography (it looks hard). When I look up “Crested Caracara” in National Audobon Field Guide to North American Birds Eastern Region, it shows this predator nowhere near New York State. This amazes me!

  4. Thanks Karen, I was glad to have a chance for some more shots, and it worked out.

    Awesome that Arlene and Lance got this state bird and lifer (as it was for me!). Congrats to both of them.
