We just passed the FLLT heron rookery on Irish Settlement Rd. and noted a

Did anyone leave some binocs on my property on the way down the stairs to the
dock? If so, contact me off-line. I noticed them this morning (spotted them
through my binoculars) and brought them up to the house. They could have been
left recently, or emerged out of the snow.
I missed all the fun yesterday because of work so I thought I might find some
Snow Geese today. I saw mostly Canada Geese, Swans, and a lot of Pintails in
the mucklands. There was also Mallards and Widgeons. The light was pretty bad
and it was also raining. I did not see the Eagles
Some of you may remember back a few years to when an Eastern Screech
owl inhabited a natural cavity along the East Ithaca Recreation Way,
not too far in from Game Farm Road. It seems to have been absent for
the past several years but tonight, as I was walking past the McDowell

On Friday we stopped by the Mud Lock Eagles nest and could not see any
head on the nest or an Eagle in any nearby trees. Hopefully it was just
