Short-eared Owl - Coxsackie Grasslands and other sightings

Richard Guthrie

A neighbor sent me photos of a Short-eared Owl battling two Northern Harriers at the Coxsackie Grasslands in Greene County today.

Also, there were 5 Bald Eagles perched in one backyard tree along the Hudson River in New Baltimore and a Belted Kingfisher in Coxsackie. 

And a Merling perched on a tree by the barn at the Scenic Hudson Longview Park on the River Road just south of the Hamlet of New Baltimore.

The Mute Swan is spending its second winter at the Coeymans Landing Boat Launch site.
