I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! Can you believe it is the last Saturday of November? The days and month have flown by. 



These are some birds I saw saw during one of our walks to the lake. Usually I hear a lot of birds, it is hard to find them mixed in the trees and leaves and take their photos.  On this day, I saw and heard different woodpecker species.  Other birds heard and not photographed are the Red-bellied Woodpecker, Pileated Woodpecker,  Kinglets, Chickadees, Titmouse and Cardinals.

1. On the fire road I noticed 2 Northern Flickers. As we walked closer, they both flew up to the tree tops. We also saw a pair of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers and out on the lake a few Double-crested Cormorants were hanging out. 



2. Seen below are a pair of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers.

Hubby and I took a short day trip to the Conowingo Dam and the Susquehanna River State Park to see the Bald Eagles. In November the Bald Eagles gather at the river just below the dam. Previous years the Eagle count was close to 200. I think we went a little too early, we will make another trip soon.  We saw numerous Double-crested Cormorants, various Gull species, Turkey Vultures and the Black Vultures and the local resident Great Blue Herons. The Ring Billed Gulls dominate but the Herring Gull and the Great Black-backed Gulls can be seen too. 


1. Below on the dam walls, are a few immature Bald Eagles, Double-crested Cormorants with a line of Gulls, 2 Great Blue Herons with a Bald Eagle, immature Bald Eagle with a few Black Vultures. 



2. There was 3 immature  Bald Eagles perched on the dam wall.

During our recent New York, we stayed in a B&B located in Geneseo and we found some nice restaurants near the Conesus Lake. One morning we took a short walk at a lakeside park. 


1. Conesus Lake is considered one of the minor Finger Lakes, it is 8 miles long and 1 mile wide. The lake supplies water to Avon and Geneseo. 



2. The Red-breasted Nuthatch was seen in one of the trees on the trail next to the lake. 




3. There were groups of Mallard ducks, Common Mergansers and Gulls around the lake. 







4.  Views of the trail and Conesus lake, flowers gardens and a fish sculpture with a water feature. 




5. Mendon Pond Park, Monroe County NY. 



6.  Along the birdsong trail, we saw the cute fairy homes, bird blinds and benches. The birds are used to people feeding them along this trail, the Chickadee and Nuthatches were flying towards us as we walked. One time a chickadee almost landed on my camera. 





7. Located at the Mendon Ponds Park is Wild Wings a home for permanently injured birds that are non-releasable.  We saw various species of Owls, like the Barn Owl, Snowy Owls, Long-eared Owls, Screech Owl, Saw-whet Owl, Osprey, various Hawks, Bald Eagles, Turkey Vultures,  Bobcat and they had a very vocal Raven. 



8. Help your native raptors.




9. Below are the Barn Owl, Snowy Owl, Long and Short-eared Owls and the Barred Owls.

I am sharing some images from our recent trip to Letchworth State Park, Mt Morris Dam controls the flow of the Genesee River, overlooks the Letchworth Canyon also known as the Grand Canyon of the East.

1. Letchworth State Park qualifies as one of the Audubon's Important Bird Areas. The open water below the dam has been known to attract over 2,000 Canada Geese in the winter. Other birds seen around the dam were the Turkey Vultures. 


Click on photos for larger viewing!



2.  More than 30 Wood Warbler species have been recorded in the park with 25 of the warblers being confirmed breeders. 




3. A view from the Great Bend scenic overlook.




4. We watched this Bald Eagle during our stop at the Great Bend Overlook. 




5. Some scenes from the Letchwork State Park, Inspiration Point, A distant view of the Upper Falls and bridge and views of the canyon walls. 




6. I found this Dark-eyed Junco in a bush off the trail between the Middle and Upper Falls. Other birds we saw in the park were the Blue Jays, White-breasted Nuthatches and American Robins. 




7. Below are views of the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls.



This trip was more for the views of the waterfalls, leaf peeping and scenic overlooks at the Letchworth State Park. I was lucky finding a few birds during our 3night a 4 day trip.
