No birds or natural history notes today - at least not yet - just a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Ann and me.
Right now, here in Inwood, about an hour after sun-up the rains of the last two days have finally stopped and the skies are clearing in the west. With a predicted high temperature approaching 60, it looks like it is going to be a lovely day! (Slipped in some natural history after-all.)
[UPDATE: Just before 10:00 am spotted from our apartment window, two Bald Eagles soaring over Spuyten Duyvil.]
[UPDATE 2: Visited my family in Park Slope, Brooklyn in the afternoon. While putting packages in the trunk of the car to move on to one of my sister's home for Christmas dinner, heard and saw Monk Parakeets and a Common Raven calling and flying over. The raven was new for my Kings County list - number 275. When I used to live there years ago, I never would have dreamt of the possibility of a raven in Brooklyn!]
