"Rare For This Neck of the Woods"--when this young #raptor showed up in #UpstateNY, birders came in from all over the place. #SwainsonsHawk #hawks #hawk #only_raptors #elite_raptors #rare #rarity #NYcap

"Harsh Start-ups Don't Solve Problems"-- never pays to be #quarrelsome. These two are lifelong mates and have occasional quarrels. #BaldEagles #arguments #eagles #problemsolving #only_raptors #elite_raptors #makingmarriagework

"Twas A Golden Opportunity"-- this juvenile #GoldenEagle paused on the cliffs along the canyon road outside of #HobackWY. Shortly after it was flying high above these cliffs and the #SnakeRiver with another Golden. Surprisingly, to me those two were not bothered when a mature Bald Eagle flew through their airspace. Any day seeing that sight with my son is a good day. #eagle #eagles #raptor #elite_raptors #only_raptors #goldenopportunity

"Fall Raptor Migration"-- I saw all of these during a fall #raptor #migration in the northeastern USA. The Monarch was with the raptors and on its way to Mexico. #coopershawk #redtailedhawk #merlin #turkeyvulture #monarchbutterfly #elite_raptors #only_raptors

"Coming To Take You Away"-- what a Bald Eagle #nightmare might look like. The descent of this fourth-year #BaldEagle is looking a bit #scary. #agingabaldeagle

"Off To A Good Start"--this Bald Eagle is six or seven months old; when they first get all of their feathers they appear dark brown and their bill is all black; the black on the bill recedes with time so you can tell that this is not a very young #firstyear #baldeagle. Also a #secondyear Bald Eagle has white on its chest. Every month that a first year Bald Eagle survives increases its long-term #survivalrate. Overall only one in ten Bald Eagles survives to its fifth year. #Raptor #elite_raptors #only_raptors #agingabaldeagle #feather_perfection

"2 Stick It 2 U"-- the answer to the question, "why did the porcupine cross the road?" I saw this guy strolling down my street again today... like he owns the place. It's pronouced pawr-kyuh-pahyn. #porcupine #quill #crosstheroad #stickit #pronunciation

"Sharp-dressed Neighbor"-- yes there are even some new blue-grey feathers in this handsome red bird's attire. It is the state bird for seven states in the USA-- only the Northern Mockingbird comes close with five states. #NorthernCardinal #Cardinal #CardinalisCardinalis #passerine #redbird #red #redandgreen #sartorialsplendor #handsome #statebird

"Perfect Conditions For Migration"--153 of these #BroadwingedHawks in about ten rising kettles along with eight* other species of raptors were aided by good northwinds toward their southern destinations here in the northeastern USA today. Along with the thrill of seeing all of these raptors migrating, there were plenty of Monarch Butterfly photobombs as these butterflies headed south toward Mexico side-by-side with the raptors. * BaldEagle, Black and Turkey Vultures, SharpShinnedHawk, CoopersHawk, RedTailedHawks, Merlin, Kestrel #elite_raptors #only_raptors #hawks #migration

"Ain't No Cinch To Name This Finch"--sometimes the difference between a #PurpleFinch and a #HouseFinch is very slight; so it is with this #rosy fellow. Can you tell whinch finch he is? It ain't no cinch. #redbird #redandgreen #red #noteasy #finch #passerine

"Where Da' Palm Trees At?"-- this #PalmWarbler is not going to find his beloved #palmtrees here in #UpstateNewYork. #warbler #passerine #yellowbird #photografia_natura #globalfotografia

"Peregrine Squiggle Perch"-- this is one of the positive effects of #lightning striking a #CottonwoodTree; it produces a clear perch for #PeregineFalcons. This grove of Cottonwood trees along the Hudson River are frequently struck by lightning. When that happens the xylem and phoem are vaporized, the bark explodes out from the tree and the dead branches make Perfect Perches for Peregrines. #EmmatheFalcon is pictured here enjoying one of her favorite look-out posts. #peregrine #elite_raptors #only_raptors #upstateny #nycap #birdofprey #bluesky #squiggles
