Several fence lizards found along the railroad tracks behind Chiques Rock Park.
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.
There were a pair of these hawks hanging out together near this baseball field. I almost immediately thought I was seeing my very first Red Shouldered Hawks. I can't be 100% certain though. Can someone help me identify these? I know the photos aren't great but when I got any closer they flew away.
Not sure if someone would be able to identify this mushroom by this photo. It was interesting because it was growing deep inside a rock crevice where it was hard to get a photo of it.
Saw this as it was attempting to kill a North American Millipede. Not sure what it is though.
Was curious as this looks like a moth at first but then I had my doubts if it was a moth at all.
New Unique Eagle Observation
My first photograph of a "Hairy". I've seen and heard them so often but never was able to get a decent photo. This shot wasn't great but its better than nothing.
My closest photo of a Deer. We scared a couple but this one didn't know we were near and walked right past us. Once it noticed us she snorted and ran. I think I see Deer in this area every time that I visit, but I've gotten better at sneaking up on them :)
This Osprey was flying up high northward above the river.
Not sure what these are exactly, some sort of sandpiper I'd assume. The tweets they made when they fly were much like the Solitary Sandpipers I've seen this year.
Saw three Juvenile Bald Eagles passing overhead flying downriver within minutes of each other. Each photo is a separate juvenile. I was so upset yesterday because when we were there fishing we saw a juvenile catch a fish right in front of us after making a couple passes. Worst time to leave my camera in the car!
The egg of a Mourning Dove that had just flown away when we startled it off its nest.
