Following an IBM science fair, the boys and I visited Teatown on Saturday and decided to hike the Lakeside trail, which was approximately 1.6 miles. Along the way we kept alert for signs of Pileated Woodpecker. While, we did see a number of fresh holes, we did not see or hear the Pileated. Nevertheless, we did see a few birds and signs and sounds of others, including a partially eaten fish near the shore, which seemed to indicate the possibility of an Eagle or Eagles fishing the lake. We had nice looks at Pine Siskins, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, Turkey Vultures, Black Vultures, American Goldfinch and Eastern Bluebirds to name a few of the species seen.
