Marine Park

Marine Park in Brooklyn was the third place we stopped at during the LSNY field trip. We found our target bird, a Red-headed Woodpecker. The Hooded Mergansers were at the Salt Marsh nature Center at Marine Park.

Floyd Bennett Field

The second stop on Saturday’s LSNY trip was to Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. The kestrel hovered in place over the meadow. You’ll have to take my word for it that the small lump in the tree is a Bald Eagle’s nest with the bird.

Chisholm SP

A Linnaean NY field trip on Saturday March 18. We spent all day at three locations along the shores of Brooklyn. The first stop was at Shirley Chisholm State Park. More to come…

The song sparrow who held on tight to a wildly swaying branch and the screaming oystercatchers made me laugh.

Framed Bridges

Post 8 of 8 in the Brooklyn Bridge Park series. I found many ways to frame the bridges.

Post 7 of 8. I had fun photographing the bridges behind vegetation.

Old Pier 1

Post 4 of 8. A famous place to photograph views of Manhattan and the harbor is the Old Pier 1 in Brooklyn. The gulls fly in to roost on the piers at night.

Seaport and DUMBO

This is the first of 8 posts from a photoshoot I did on a Sierra Photo NYC outing with Charles and Carlos. We took the Ferry from Pier 11 south of Wall Street to Pier 1 in DUMBO Brooklyn and stayed until sunset.
