Urban Autumn on the Bronx River

Concrete Plant10_16_08

As the trees across from Concrete Plant Park show the obvious signs of autumn, some of our summer visitors have yet to pack up and leave town. The Great Egret, Double Crested Cormorants and the Mallard in the lower half of the photograph are usually on their way south to their respective winter digs by this time, but something is keeping them around. There are still fish to be seen swimming in the estuary section which could be a factor, or maybe they are expecting a mild winter like what we experienced last year. Could be, though, that they are keeping an eye the neighborhood improvements and considering a permanent move!
