After a kind birder pointed this out to me via email, I went off in search of the real Riverdale Pond and got lost. I have an admission to make and that is I have no sense of direction. Yes I can do three years worth of financial projections for a department or run a complex query in a database, but I can't find my way from point A to point B without some serious help. I need a whole day to bird because I spend most of my time in my car trying to figure out how to get to places.
The picture above is the other Eagle at Riverdale Pond. The picture is lousy because I couldn't get close enough to it to save my life. Oh well, at least I saw it. I will go back this weekend when the skies are sunny and hope for better luck. I will get a decent Eagle photo this month no matter what! I am determined!
Last but not least is my favorite subject lately which are the Peregrines. Check out the male above. Do you know what he is doing???? Why he is sleeping of course!!!! He loves this spot and spends a lot of his day there. I have gotten quite a few emails from folks who live around the Worcester area asking me where the best place is to catch a glimpse of the Falcons and if you park at the Chestnut Street garage in downtown Worcester you should get a very good look at the male falcon if he is hanging out on this ledge. It will be to the right of you. I have yet to do this myself and may try it during my lunch hour today as it is going to be sunny and in the 60's!!
Happy Friday everyone.
