As the sign indicates I took a trip down to Green Island Wildlife Preserve yesterday. I had very low expectations as this is not the best time of the year to visit the preserve, the weather was cold, gray, and cloudy so I fully expected to come back with an empty memory card.
While none of my images are outstanding in any way, I am always happy to photograph a Bald Eagle. Even if he has his back to me and is a long way off. I just love to watch these magnificent creatures.
I also found some Trumpeter Swans at the preserve. Here is an adult with three signets. There was an abundance of swans at the lake as well but too far away to photograph. I enjoyed listening to the sounds they make.
The ever-present Canada geese are always fun to watch and photograph.
It occurred to me that many people who follow this blog have never been to the Green Island Preserve. So I shot this short video to give you some idea of what it is like. Perhaps I’ll do that again in the Spring when there is an abundance of wildlife and migratory birds in the area.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
