Spring and another Sunshine day saw me traveling to the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge near Seneca Falls, New York over the weekend The Nikon 80-400VR lens brought back a nice group of avian photographs to share with you today.
For the third year in a row I am featuring a photo of a Song Sparrow. The males arrive before the females and sing to defend a nesting site. Later their song turns to love to lure a mate. It is a bit early and I didn’t see to many of them but this guy was eyeing me.
Using what I learned at Webster’s Pond earlier this year, I captured a Canada Goose and Osprey in flight over the refuge.
Montezuma is in between a couple of migration periods as the huge flocks of Snow and Canada Geese have moved north and the shore birds have just begun to arrive. Instead, I found some residents of the refuge: White-breasted Nuthatch, Black-capped Chickadee and Tree Swallow.
