I made two birding trips today which included Beaver Island State Park and then Birdsong in Orchard Park.

A pair of Osprey at Beaver Island were the highlight for me. They hunted and soared over the water, screeching as they flew. A few terns were about and a gorgeous Great Egret preened on a large log in the sun.

It was a glorious day to be out and I captured a few photos of the day and am posting below.
