May 4th 2013 was Wildlife Festival day at the Montezuma Audubon Center. This will probably be the last trip to Savannah for a while, I've been there 3 times in 4 weeks...this was however the best visit to the refuge this year.
More after the squiggle.
The day starts with a Chipping Sparrow in my yard.
Blue-winged Teal showing how they got the name.
Lesser Yellowlegs, at least I think it is. I'm not very good at identifying Sandpipers, but it wasn't very big so I don't think it's a Greater Yellowlegs...
Purple Martin, finally some good lighting.
Female Eastern Bluebird, I was surprised to see a Bluebird on a Bluebird Box...especially since there had been a Tree Swallow on that box a few seconds before.
More Sandpipers, the lighting was starting to get bad. This pool was backlit...it was almost more than my consumer zoom and cheap teleconverter could handle. RAW and Aperture save the day.
This was a new one for me. I think they're Gadwall.
Female Red-winged Blackbird
Song Sparrow singing away
This Heron took two fish in the time I was watching him. I didn't get a good shot of him with a fish either time...
On to the Audubon Center's Wildlife Festival.
Birds of Prey from the Kindred Kingdoms Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
One-eyed Barred Owl
The star of the show, Great Horned Owl
Green Heron. If someone hadn't pointed him out I never would have seen him. The lighting was just about as bad as it could be...high noon and not a cloud in the sky.
I'll end with a Green Frog.
