Spotting and then photographing wildlife has some tricks to it. One trick is to know WHAT to look for. The easiest time to spot predator birds - or those birds who eat other birds - is to scan trees for 'football' shapes. You'll be surprised how distant you can be and still see a good sized bird. Easier of course in the winter, when there are no leaves on the trees.. Another trick is to know WHERE to look. Ossining, New York is a Hudson River Valley town, and the Hudson has lots and lots of fish. That's just good eats for the eagles, peregrine, red tailed hawks, and owls. Hang out in the right places and keep a sharp eye out - you'll be amazed at what may be right nearby!
