Unusual leucistic individual, seen at the Christmas Bird Count
Christmas Bird Count
Slumming at the Truck Stop
The distribution of this species in NY puzzles me; they are such as everyday bird in California, that I am not used to thinking of them as highly local.
A bit distant, but one can see the white rump.
I doubt there's enough to ID this ode.
Not great pictures, but so important to document this charismatic species.
Along the dike at Knox-Marcellus Marsh
Three of them, behind the PBGrebe
In front of the three Gallinules
Two together on the mudflats
Small spider, on a log on the beach at the Lake Ontario shore
Huge but missing some legs?
At dusk in my Mom's neighborhood
Very poor picture, but you can see the colors and the white wing square.
An amazing fly! It stretched each of its wings, which had amazing details. I have some additional pictures, which can be accessed on my FB page at https://www.facebook.com/jennifer.rycenga/media_set?set=a.10150372095748424.357020.668963423&type=1
