Wildlife Photos from 09/09/12 – Denning’s Point

Black-throated Green Warbler (fall)

I was in the right spot at the right time in Beacon, with many things going on all at the same time.  I didn’t have the best lighting in the world, but I did the best I could.

Ironically, the main reason I went was to look for migrating sandpipers, and I didn’t see a single one.  It was even low tide when I got there!  I had everything going in my favor, but sometimes you just strike out.

What I missed in sandpipers, I made up for in sheer variety.  I got a see a great variety of herons and egrets, including my first black-crowned night-heron.  I also stumbled into a mixed flock of migrating fall warblers, some of which I still haven’t identified yet.  Add in an osprey, and it’s another exciting day along the Hudson River.
