I love these one very much, they have such a neat quality to them selves. Color, smell you name it! They are pretty cool in my mind. My wife had special order these from Europe I believe several years ago and she use to be able to tell me what they were called. So to remind you that I enjoy taking picture of most flowering plants and shrubs but in most cases I do not know there names of variety so fell free to jump in at any time and identify my images of them. Thank you, MT
This is a Immature Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) that saw on May 2nd up in a large tree along the river banks of the Susquehanna River in Vestal New York. I was Kayaking with my oldest son down the river from Johnson City to Mores Park in Vestal for a fun sort ride. We saw him about half way into our adventure. He was quit a large and massive bird more resembling a hawk then an eagle at first look but it's sizes did give it away. It has been nice to see them in the Binghamton NY's surrounding area the last few years.
A male Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas). These little ones seam to be all over the place no mater were I go. They are in almost all of North America along with the Yellow Warbler as well according to the Stokes Field Guide. They love dense brushy areas near wet locations. This one was up in the Cannonsville Reservoir area of Deposit NY, but I can easily find them in my back yard or the family farm property 10 miles away. This images was taken on 5-7-15.
