Massapequa, Massapequa Preserve

Massapequa Preserve was relatively quiet on Sunday - a few American Wigeons, Hooded Mergansers, Mallards, a Great Blue Heron - only thing a little unusual was a Hermit Thrush.

At my house, there were some American Goldfinches at the feeders - the black and white back pattern was impressive up close.  While outside taking down the Christmas lights I heard a metallic "scratching noise" then saw a Sharp Shinned Hawk or a Merlin swooping down the street.  It must have been perched on my chimney cap or gutters.
