03-29-15 – Photos from Sleightsburgh and Kingston Point Park

Rondout Lighthouse

Rondout Lighthouse

With the weather finally becoming a little more favorable, I took my spotting scope off to the Hudson River and Rondout Creek to look for waterfowl.  Looking for waterfowl has become a lot of fun, but it doesn’t usually equal great photos.  Most of the photos are so far away you can barely tell what species.

At Sleightsburgh Park in Port Ewen, not only did I see my first white-winged scoter, I also saw hooded mergansers, common goldeneyes, and ring-necked ducks.

At Kingston Point Park, I saw a great sign of Spring, an american robin pulling a worm out of the ground.  I didn’t see any waterfowl there, but the Rondout Lighthouse will always be there!  For more photos from the day, check out the gallery.
