Jamaica Bay NWR

After visiting Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in the morning of June 21st we drove down to Jamaica Bay in he afternoon and saw an additional 25 species of birds for the day in an hour. The jet speed antics of the Tree Swallows are such fun to watch.

Jamaica Bay

I went to Jamaica Bay NWR in Brooklyn with two dear friends yesterday. There were quite a few winter ducks. I enjoyed the Brant and Snow Geese. A special one was the Long Tailed Duck at Sheepshead Bay. The best one for me was the Long-tailed Grackle who serenaded us. As part of its song it did a wing slap. I learned something new. It was real treat to get out and bird.

Sunset at Jamaica Bay

Marc and I went to the Littoral Society’s NE Chapter annual dinner last Sunday. Before the dinner I had time to take a few shots of a fabulous sunset at the Jamaica Bay NWR.

Little Things

I had fun making these while my big lens was in the shop. My Nikon Mikro 105mm is the other extreme from my 80-400mm zoom.
