Ok well... time to start posting the good pics from Arcadia wildlife sanctuary/connecticut river oxbow adventure yesterday
Starting with the most amazing thing I saw: Northern Harriers
There were two, a male and a female.
Really beautiful and amazing to see. They fly very low along the tops of the tall grass while hunting, letting the wind propel them silently.
Ok, now for smaller birds:
Palm warblers (?)*
Yellow-rumped warbler (?)
*There were a lot of these and they kept practically posing for me but not sitting still long enough to find and focus on, so I got a lot of funny shots of them like jumping out of frame or generally being a blur
Smaller birds continued:
That bluejay I posted on my alt yesterday...
Tree (?) swallows
Okay and the last smaller birds:
Okay, the last pictures from yesterday's adventure.
I didn't even notice the fishhook in the first one until editing. Unfortunate pollution from people fishing in a place that's supposed to be protected lead to a sort of happy accident - the image telling more of a story than I intended.
