Ron Shields’ Lark Sparrow Photos

IMG_5556As promised, here are several of the Lark Sparrow shots that Ron Shields took near the Carillon in DeKorte Park (along Disposal Road) this morning. Ron also found the bird.  (Thanks, Ron!)

Ridgefield Park Bald Eagle Update

IMG_4320Jill Homcy writes:

When I stopped at the Ridgefield Park nest over the weekend, Al & Alice weren’t there yet, but there were a ton of cormorants and gulls.

About 5 minutes later Al flew in and perched to the lower right on the nest tree. A few minutes later Alice came soaring in, landed by Al and greeted him beak-to-beak.

They then proceeded to alert on and off while I was there. There was a Red-tailed Hawk circling on my side of the creek, and then a little while later an immature  eagle flew in and landed in the upper left back side of the nest tree. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to photograph the younger eagle.

(Thanks, Jill!)
