Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge and a Gorgeous Spring Saturday
What an absolutely gorgeous day. The first birds of the day were woodpeckers cavorting, but it was hard to tell weather they were downy or hairy woodpeckers. Although I didn't get a good enough picture to share I could see spots on the white tail feathers, thus they were Downy Woodpeckers. There were three of them chasing each other among the trees; fun to watch.
Here's one of the snow geese above
A couple of Ospreys are back and there were lots of Brant. The Red-Winged Blackbirds are back as well as Tree Swallows. There were lots of Lesser Scaup and Ruddy Ducks also.
