04-11-15 – Photos around Ulster County

Dark-eyed Junco

Dark-eyed Junco

Visited several location around Ulster County on this day.  At Franny Reese State Park, the sightings were few and far between, but I did manage to see a female purple finch.  Other assorted birds included golden-crowned kinglets and dark-eyed juncos.

The next stop was at Slabsides,a spot that has given me some nice sightings this time of year, but ended up striking out.  Because of this, I stopped at Sleightsburg Park in Port Ewen to see what was around.  Again, it was largely quiet, but an american kestrel came by to shake it up a bit.  It even perched close enough to get a good look with the spotting scope!  I pressed a point and shoot camera against the eyepiece to capture the moment.
