Recent Work - A Tour of the Black Dirt Region and Wallkill River
Golden Eagle, not an expected raptor in the Black Dirt, along Onion Avenue Northerm Flicker at Owens Station Road visitor center
Black Dirt is not the place you go for Bald Eagle, but does it matter? They're everywhere these days. Black Dirt in winter means Rough-legs. Sometimes. But count on Red-tailed Hawks.
Black Vultures in the Black Dirt. Seems appropriate. Sitting on a silo near Missionland Road. To quote legendary basketball commentator Bill Raftery, "Onions"!
 Snowing over the Wallkill River. Seems odd to me for so many Snow Geese, roughly 10,000, to be in this area in mid-winter. But there they are.
