Hey Fred, there's a gyrfalcon (seriously) that's been seen repeatedly perching on the osprey platform on the north end of Nummy Island. The birders have been all over it. Might want to swing up there to check it out -- I'd be all over it if I were closer.

Thanks Belmo, took a ride and easy to find. Six car with scopes and camera's enduring the sleet. Good distance off pic is heavily cropped.

i'm not a drop everything to chase a bird report guy, but i would have considered giving it a shot if you were going. i'll be in the poconos this weekend though, so good luck sir :th:

got some shots through the sliding glass door yesterday of a "resident" red-shouldered hawk that enjoys the abundance of hickory-nut-and- acorn-fattened mice in our yard. Images not as crisp as I'd like but I was shooting through dirty glass and a screen while bracing the camera on an exercise bike/coat rack
