Red Bellied Woodpecker at feeder


We think this may be one of the baby red-bellied woodpeckers now grown up that visited our house with its parent this summer.

Leucistic Red-tailed Hawk in Flight

Leucistic  Red-tailed Hawk

This hawk has become a bit of an obsession with Mike. It has returned to the same area in the fall the past three years. It is often visible from the entrance to Rt 18 North from Rutgers Busch campus. We spotted him on a light pole today, but the entrance to a freeway is not a safe place to stop (as the campus police reminded us last year). We circled back, parked at the Rutgers Visitor Center and walked on the bike trail that goes along the freeway and got this shot of him flying. The bike trail is called the "East Coast Greenway" on the map above. The hawk was also perched in the trees near the freeway but a bit too obscured for a good photo.
