Description

I am just now posting this sighting from a year and a half ago because until someone just pointed out that it was a Map Turtle, I had just assumed it was a Painted Turtle. This would make my first and so far only observation of a wild Map Turtle so I'm very happy someone noticed this error I made on Flickr. This observation was made during the crest level of a flooded Susquehanna River.

Description

Saw this Red-Tailed Hawk while I was driving on this rainy day. I stopped and got a couple shots with my 300mm lens before it saw me getting nearer and it flew away. I'm pretty sure this is the same one I've seen here now about 3 times this year so far. Perhaps the same one that frequented here last year as well.

I had the pleasure of spying on these Turkey Vultures until they spotted me and ran for cover in their den. The one began hissing loudly until I left. I'm pretty surprised that they made a den here. A local county park trail passes right above an old iron mining ravine where they made their den in some hematite boulders.
