I saw these guys from my window this morning and ran out to take their picture. Saw this Wood Duck couple as well.
Jerry Barrack, who pretty much invented nature photography at the Celery Farm, is bringing his amazing one-man show to the monthly Fyke meeting this Friday at 8 at the Wyckoff Library. (That's Jerry on the right in the above photo. Correction: Jerry took the above photo. I am just jealous.)
The show is free. For details, click here.
Rob sez: "Highlights from the CF Thursday were a pair of (right on schedule) PIED-BILLED GREBES (at times synchronized grebing), a drake AMERICAN WIGEON, and a RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH near the small footbridge leading to the point foraging on buds!--not far away from where I saw one on Jan 2nd." (Thanks, Rob!)
Ron Filomeno took these Osprey shots at the Celery Farm this past weekend. (Thanks, Ron!)

I just got an advance copy of the nifty new guidebook to identifying Celery Farm plants.
Written by Edith Wallace, with illustrations by Nancy Bristow and design by Deedee Burnside, this is a must-have for anyone who who has tried to identify one of those baffling plants at the Celery Farm.
Details on how and where to purchase, and how much this beauty will cost should be forthcoming.
In the meantime, a hearty congrats to the authors, and big "thank you" to Fyke Nature Association for sponsoring this worthy project.
Next time you get Poison Ivy, it's on you (so to speak).
