Monday April 22nd and Tuesday April 23rd were beautiful days in CNY, there was no way I could pass up going to Beaver Lake Nature Center in the evenings.

Monday was meeting day for the Friends of Beaver Lake Photography Group so I stayed in the center and took photos of the feeder birds and other visitors.

More below the squiggle.

Beaver Lake has a beautiful feeder setup. All of the common feeder birds can be seen, some displaying behavior I haven't seen before. Like Juncos on feeders instead of the ground and Tufted Titmice hanging upside down...

Tuesday was a night for a walk. Walking the Bog and Hemlock Hollow trails I didn't see much beyond a few crows and chipmunks. I heard plenty of things, when there weren't other people holding conversations nearby...

Glad these were stuck to a log and not to me...

Then I went into the Arboretum trail. Look who came out of the woods...probably too noisy along the other trails with all the conversations going on...

On the way out I saw a White-throated Sparrow in the leaf litter.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
