PHOTOS OF THE WEEK

SEEN ON A RECENT WALK AT A WETLAND, AND ALONG A NEARBY RIVERBANK


A JUVENILE RED-TAILED HAWK LIFTED FROM A DEAD TREE, CIRCLED UPWARD ON THERMALS AND DRIFTED AWAY TOWARD THE SOUTH.


WALKING THROUGH BRUSHY MEADOW, I INADVERTENTLY KICKED THE STALK OF A MILKWEED PLANT. PARACHUTE SEEDS  FILLED THE AIR AND GLISTENED IN SUNLIGHT.


FROM THE RIVERBANK, I SPOTTED TWO HOODED MERGANSERS HUGGING THE BANK. THE MALE'S WHITE HEAD PATCH STOOD OUT EASILY FROM 50 YARDS AWAY.


WHILE I WATCHED, A MALE HAIRY WOODPECKER FLEW ACROSS THE RIVER, ALTERNATING WINGBEATS WITH SWOOPING GLIDES.
