Morningside Park and Bashakill

This adult Bald Eagle was way to interested in a pair of fisherman in a rowboat nearby me. It circled them quite low several times this morning and it was clear if they had pulled in a fish he was going to go for it.  Not good behavior at all. It flew over and rested on and island not far from me giving me some photo ops.

Its been a relatively quiet week since our big day at sea. I’ve visited Morningside each day and had a total of seven species of shorebird there. Today, only four were present. Least and Spotted Sandpipers and Killdeer and Semipalmated Plover. It was still and interesting morning with Great Blue and Green Herons and an adult Bald Eagle. Four species of swallows were also present. A quick stop by Haven Road afterward yielded Great Blue and Great Egrets, Red-tailed Hawk and Northern Harrier. Three juvie Gallinules are still just off the bridge.
There were 15 Least Sandpipers present this morning.

This Semipalmated Plover is now in its third day.
