One of Those Days

Red-tatiled Hawk

I pulled into the parking lot at Liberty Loop and there in front of me was a Red-tailed Hawk trying desperately to balance in the crazy wind.  But no sooner had I got out with my camera when a little something caught his eye.  Rats!  Or rather, Voles!  Deciding it was way to cold and windy to stay at the Wallkill, I opted for looking for Longspurs.

American Kestrel

As I crawled up and down the farm lanes of Pine Island, NY, I spied an American Kestrel sitting on a wire.  I pulled over and inched along to get a good view, when the same thing happened.

Northern Harrier

And I am 3 for 3 on raptors flying away when this Northern Harrier, ghosted past.

  1. I have days like that too, and sometimes they don’t even involve birds.

  2. …well at least you managed to snap off a few photos. my delayed reaction time commonly results in a beautifully exposed and sharp perch. blurred bird in background, heading for the hills…

    happy birding

  3. Nice pictures of some nice birds. Glad you were able to get out and enjoy them – even flying away.
