Joe Fredricks - November 2014


Joe Fredricks took this photo at Beaver Island Park on Tuesday, November 18th at 4:30 p.m. We were lucky the wall of snow stayed well south of us. For out-of-towners, behind that wall, Cheektowaga and Lancaster were getting 60" of snow in less than 24 hours.

Paul Leuchner wrote: This weekend brought us an array of exciting weather. The attached photo was taken during the late afternoon of October 4th when the sun appeared briefly between lake effect rain showers. It shows the South Grand Island Bridge illuminated by sunlight and a rainbow formed in the droplets of departing rain. The effect was erased a few minutes later as more lake effect rain pummeled Grand Island.




David A. Reilly, Ph.D. - September 2014


David A. Reilly, Ph.D. took these pictures near his home on Whitehaven.

Tom Burke wrote in with information on the immature red tail hawks. The top photo shows the banded brown tail, after the first moult the new feathers will be the red that are usually associated with the species. The bottom photo shows the snowy white breast patch of the first year bird.

Marius Irimies - June 2014

Marius Irimies photos - Click photo for larger view

During a June 20th kayak eco-tour to the upper Niagara River islands led by island resident Paul Leuchner, paddlers were treated to a very rare sight. After landing on the beach at Strawberry Island an iridescent cloud appeared in the southern sky over the City of Buffalo skyline. The iridescent hue and its spectral array of color was visible for about a half hour. During that time the colors intensified, faded and then re-intensified as the cloud moved with the air currents. Local meteorologists reported that day that the existence of "iridescent clouds" is quite unusual and rarely observed. The iridescence occurs in high altitude clouds as light is diffracted through supercooled water droplets.




Paul Leuchner - June 2014

Click photo for larger view

Paul Leuchner sent in this photo of a Cercropia Moth (Hyalophora cecropia) taken Wednesday, June 4th in the afternoon at Fisherman's Landing. The adult moth had just emerged and was resting on the masonry foundation of the nearby lift station. This particular species of moth is the largest in North America having a wingspan of seven inches. It is mostly nocturnal and often adult moths can be found gathering around street and porch lights. During the larval stage the caterpillars will feed on leaves all through the summer eventually sealing themselves into a cocoons. They emerge the following spring. The sole purpose of the adult stage is to mate and lay eggs. Once the adult emerges it will not eat and will only survive for about two weeks.




Mary Stewart - May 2014

Mary Stewart has had a robin return to her house for many years, making its nest in a ladder hanging on the back of her garage. This year three babies are in residence and she got a close-up of the kids looking very hungry.

Mary also enters her photos in an online photo website, Pixoto. Her latest entry won top 20% for April, top 20% week of 4/6 and top 20% for April 7th. Nice job Mary!




Gary McDannell - April 2014


Click photo for larger view

Gary McDannell took this picture in the open waters of the lagoon at Beaver Island State Park. It shows four canvasbacks and one common golden eye. Gary also sent in a link to the Pittsburgh Hays Bald Eagle Cam. Currently, there are two eaglets and one egg that has not hatched yet. So neat to watch!




Chris Cinelli - March 2014



Chris Cinelli photos - Click photos for larger view.

Chris Cinelli and his son have been feeding mealworms to bluebirds in nesting boxes over the winter. By the looks of them they are fat and happy. Sure makes you think Spring is just around the corner. Tom Burke informed me that the Bluebirds will begin pairing up shortly to begin their nesting season in April. See story from January




Gary McDannell - March 2014

Gary McDannell wrote, "This is a picture of a immature Bald Eagle that I took on Circle Drive (Loop Rd., Beaver Island State Park) on Sunday afternoon, March 2nd. He hung around for a long time, long enough for a crowd of people to stop and gaze at him."




Kim Ludwig Photo - February 2014

Click photo for larger view

Kim Ludwig discovered a beautiful red morph Eastern Screech Owl hanging out in her neighbor's tree on Meadow Lane this week. Red morph refers to the birds coloring. Adults range from 6 to 10 inches in length and weigh 4.3 to 8.6 oz. The wingspan can range from 18 to 24 inches. Shhh...I think she's sleeping.
