Photos from 01/14/12 – Vassar Farm, Wappingers Lake

Hooded Mergansers (males)

The first hike of the year is in the books!  Not only did I see and photograph two new birds, the photographs didn’t come out too bad either.  The merlin in particular was in the perfect setting for clear, detailed shots.  Wappingers Lake also had plenty of interesting waterfowl in nearly every corner I looked.  Those hooded mergansers definitely put on a good show too.

I have put together a photo gallery from the day’s hike.  Enjoy!
