Sharing these observations and documentation photos from non-bird related travels but with camera gear usually with me.
Albany County - this morning
One adult Iceland gull and one immature Iceland gull, on ice just west of Crescent Power Plant on Mohawk R Photo of younger one.
Schenectady County - this morning
Snowy Owl-YES, with binoculars, a tiny stationery and flying white dot on the National Guard base as viewed from the airport . . . the only truly satisfying view might be if you are a member of The Guard. No photo. I'm not a poster of specific snowy or any owl locations but this one is not really accessible.
Saratoga County-this week
A couple pair of red crossbills gritting or in trees in Lake Desolation area, with attached photo of a drinking male.
A few bald eagles-in numerous places with open water
A few bald eagles as well in numerous open water river spots
