After a few days of nice weather, a nasty cold front was heading our direction and promised to bring some bad weather. I made a little time to see about my favorite pair of birds, Joachim and Anna. As soon as I parked the car, I could hear a bald eagle. Sure enough, the bird was in a tussle with something else. With my little 70-300mm lens, I couldn’t tell what the other bird was.
It looked as if my pair of birds were still in nest construction. I will have to walk on the bridge and shoot into the nest to see if they have any eggs.
There were several male red-winged blackbirds making a fuss. I counted four laughing gulls as well. There were two large flocks of cormorants that landed in the river midway to the West Point shoreline.
