This very well done video was forwarded to be by Ron Bonneau, one of my blog followers. Thanks so much, Ron! It was a computer project meant to simply be shared with other people in the area, but has had over a million viewers on You Tube.

With all the rain from last spring onward, the chore of keeping my garden going, I did not get to do much birding. "Soundwise" I am always capable, even with my hearing deficiency, of identifying bird calls and songs, even though I don't "always" visually capture the bird. Even this last September and October, the raptor (hawks, falcons) season, the weather was not always good. Even though The Mount (Esopus and the Hudson River) are "pretty much" on the "Atlantic Flyway", I did not see too many migrating raptors. Soooo......now that Fall has pretty much morphed into winter I have the hope of both hearing and seeing owls. Here is a good Eagle Owl sequence in slow motion that my friend and fellow Redemptorist Missionary, Kevin MacDonald sent me. Thanks, Kevin.
