Croton Point Park
It's been almost a year since I visited Croton and wanted to see how it fared during Sandy. It was a beautiful, sunny day and I found most of my wish list. Although I didnt actually see the coyote, there were absolutely no ducks and these coyote tracks in the sand. I also found this downy, this kingfisher, bald eagle, and this adult male Cooper's Hawk. The surprise of the day was this juvenile osprey. I also found this kestrel hunting over the Cap, and what I think are white-winged crossbills. Storm damage to the owl sanctuary was bad, but I was happy to see both GHOs at flyout. Hopefully the screechys did just as well.
