Last weekend here but again excellent weather. Early morning a short drive to Oradell but again the eagle residents are far out. On for Lake Tappan. Same old birds as always but this time lucky to spot a Northern Cardinal couple in the small trees. Another drive to Stateline Lookout but as every Sunday, […]

What a great day. Slightly cold but fantastic blue sky and clear view. First stop at Oradell Reservoir. As all the other days the birds are far out to take good pictures. One bird close by on the fence but that’s basically it. Moving on to Stateline Lookout. Also as in the last days, patience […]

Very nice weather when I arrived. Short round trip to Oradell, Lake Tappan and Stateline Lookout. Not much to see in the first two places, but Stateline was quite busy with some falcons.
Highly recommended for bird-shooting… However, either it was me not able to get to right places or because of the strong winds or because wrong time of the year (which I doubt), but not good conditions for getting some nice pictures from this trip. The best (if one could call it that) area was in […]
