Roy Woodford Disposal Road Raptor Jubilee

Light-morph RoyRoy Woodford writes:

There are (at least) two Gray Ghosts hanging around in the past week… I’ve seen both at once.  The one I got shots of has more streaking … I guess it’s a younger bird.

The action has been really good lately … the birds are close enough I can shoot with my full frame body without the teleconverter and only crop to frame the image.  If you’re patient, they’ll get within 50 feet.

Add  a Peregrine coming after my lens and a Light-morph Rough-leg (above) to the list…

It’s so busy out there … I don’t know what to point the camera at …

(Thanks, Roy!)

Tuesday Teaser-o-rama 122413




Welcome to the fourth in a series of Tuesday Teasers devoted to Losen Slote Creek Park, the site of our fifth annual Super Bird Sunday Walk on Feb. 2.

Between now and then, we will offer a different Losen Slote-based Teaser presented by the Bergen County Audubon Society. To participate, just e-mail your answer to the Teaser each week to Jim Wright at jim.wright@njmeadowlands.gov by each Tuesday at midnight, with “Teaser” marked in the subject field. The person with the highest number of correct answers will win something or other.

Today’s Teasers are pictured above. What are they, and what do they have in common? (Yes, finally a bird-related Teaser-o-rama.)

Answer appears tomorrow.
