Pallisade Interstate Park
There I found great late spring birding along the Hudson River's western shore. While crossing the GWB I found this 2nd spring Peregrine on the eastern span. Once on the Jersey side, I found the resident red-tailed hawks staking out the starling nests along the cliffs. Looks like someone took a bite out of her wing...I wonder who? That's who! And this is why: seems there are at least 3 eyass in the scrape. I also found tons of orioles, flycatchers of all sorts, waxwings, as well as yellow warblers and a variety of swallows. I also found this momma Turkey with about 12 poults. Last but not least there was also a bumper crop of deer, deer ticks and bunnies. Great birding within waking distance.
