Gary Lesser - November 2017

   These glorious photos of an East River sunrise were taken by Gary Lesser during week of November 6th. When the weather shifts from warm summer sunrises to crisp, cold autumn mornings, the fog occurs. The phenomenon goes by many names, including steam fog, evaporation fog, frost smoke and sea smoke. We will call it river smoke! Thanks for sharing Gary!

Linda Rowe - June 2017

   This photo is of two Killdeer on the wetlands in the Rowe backyard. They are sitting on their nest which contains 4 eggs. Killdeer build their nest on the ground. The eggs resemble stones. The day after I took this photo, the birds hatched and were running around. Newly hatched Killdeer walk as soon as they are hatched.

Cotter is a 118' fireboat used by the Buffalo Fire Department. It was built in 1900 and then rebuilt in 1953. It is said to be the oldest active fireboat in the world and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1996.

It would normally be here only during migration.

    Mary Stewart took this photo of a hawk in her front yard, right after it had finished a robin for lunch.
   Tom Burke wrote in to clarify: Hawk on post is a red tail hawk in immature (first year) plumage. That bird was hatched last year. The bird eating the robin is a cooper's hawk in adult plumage. The cooper's hawk is a member of the accipiter group of hawks. Accipiters specialize in hunting birds.

The barge delivers petroleum to NOCO. Jeff also sent in a "pro" photo of the Calusa Coast. Thanks guys!
