Let’s See What We Can Spot Together!
Did you know that there are about 785,000 people that live in the Hudson Hills and Highlands? That gives us collectively well over a million eyes to observe our local flora and fauna! Please record any interesting observations you see this month in the comments box below. Be sure to tell us the location, date, and time of your observations.
For example, Steve Sachs — who is an extraordinary nature photographer and will be giving a photo workshop at the EagleFest on February 7 — reported on email@example.com that on January 3:
“While driving to work this morning in Harriman (NY), I had an adult golden eagle soaring above Route 6 right at the pull off for the scenic overlook above Central Valley. I was able to pull off and take a few photos as the bird was almost hovering over the ridge. It then glided back up the hill, then chased down the hill by the resident pair of screaming red tail hawks. I could not find it again as I continued down the hill. Last year, I had seen an eagle several times in the same area but could never stop to look at it closely, but I believe it may have been a golden also. If you travel this road regularly keep an eye out. I will have pictures at www.stevesachsphotography.com, under ‘new winter 2008-9’.” Steve Sachs
Let’s see what we are observing together. While Steve’s golden eagle sighting is great, feel free to log in other more modest sightings. Sometimes the common plants and animals when seen in a special moment bring the most inspiration and joy!
Happy nature watching,
