Heading North

It was a fog filled morning at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area today. The Snow geese have arrived in full force this past week and today was the first chance I had to get up there to spend some time with this mesmerizing flock. The 2018 year has proven to have the largest numbers present…

Ducks Galore

Before the rain set in this weekend, Friday I was able to finally get back down to Washington DC to Constitution Gardens to enjoy the ducks in the pond. The ice has mostly melted and the waterfowl are thrilled to be back. Northern Shovelers, Gadwalls, American wigeons, Ring necked ducks, and of course the mallards…

A Few Birds This Week

I’d like to share with you a few of our feathered friends from my recent adventures. Now that I’ve been photographing birds for a number of years, and with the hundreds of thousands of clicks that I’ve done in doing so, I’ve finally learned when ‘not to take the shot.’ This has been a hard…

Ducks in the City

Beginning of a New Year

Time flies when you’re having fun. The New Year has begun and after my rant and rave just at the end of the year about what had happened with the Snowy Owls in Delaware and New Jersey, I took a break and went on walkabout. The week after the holidays is always very quiet for…

Snowy Owl and Social Responsibility

It’s time for me to rant a little as something came up yesterday when I was out in the field in Delaware visiting the Snowy Owl that many have heard of by now. Please bear with me as this will be a long story. Allow me to first say that wildlife is unpredictable, but many…

A Snowy Owl

From shore to shore I traveled this past week. Leaving the beautiful and soft sands of Southwest Florida where the breezes were light and the temperatures were warm to the cold and brisk Northeastern seaboard of Delaware. Before my trip I had heard that a number of Snowy Owls had traveled further south than usual…
