Gamelands trip today

Was doing my bird counting trip for the Great Backyard Bird Count (http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/) and I thought I would share some of the pictures from the gamelands I was on.

Deep Snow? Not too bad...





It is February 13th right...counted 27 of these guys and 3 of the cedar wax wings.





The view from the cliff, Straight down...



Selinsgrove in the distance.









Herndon Head




I know it is a gameland...but plenty of deer tracks.



I hiked around 2 miles, sometimes through 2 foot snowdrifts, but it was worth it, when I got back to the car a Peregrine falcon was using the drafts from the cliff for some hunting...what a beautiful animal...and fast it covered the length of the ridge in a couple of seconds before diving towards the creek. Not the supersonic dive, but a speedy one nonetheless. Made another pass over the cliff before heading for the river.

Catch-and-Release wild trout.
