I spent about 7 hours at the Hook on Tuesday, much of it on the hawk watch platform. I also forgot to put sun block on my hands, which now look like lobster claws. We saw lots of good birds, including an Osprey who had landed on the nest with a fish (this nest was on the building at the Garden):
There were a lot of Turkey Vultures around and a few Egrets:
Here’s a Barn Swallow chillin’ on a wire:
And a cute White-breasted Nuthatch who sat close to us in a tree at the hawk watch:
All in all, it was a great day, and I tallied 77 species.
