Wildlife Photos from 12/24/12 – Vassar Farm

Red-shouldered Hawk

Red-shouldered Hawk

With a four day weekend because of the holidays, I had hoped to spend some time outside.  When I got the chance, I went out to Vassar Farm to look for winter wildlife.

It was a mostly quiet day, with the exception of a very large mixed flock of birds out in the fields.  It was large enough to attract the attention of the red-shouldered hawk you see here.

The biggest surprise of the day was three field sparrows with the flock.  A common summer resident to our area, this would be the first time I’ve ever seen them in the window.  Thankfully, I got a pair of photos for proof.  For them and the rest of the shots from the day, please visit the gallery.  Enjoy!
