Ridgefield NWR 01-20-11

I had a mighty fine morning at Ridgefield yesterday.. It was cold but dry and there were quite a few birds out, some that I had not seen yet this year...

Red-winged Blackbird (female)

                           Great Blue Heron


Golden-crowned Kinglet


White-breasted Nuthatch


Song Sparrow


American Bittern

It was a very typical trip to Ridgefield with quite a few eagles, hawks, harriers also..  After that trip my January total was brought up to 80 birds!   Hopefully I can add to that this weekend!

  2. Cool pictures! Those American bitterns are sneaky some times. They blend right in.Good job with the GC Kinglet-they move around a lot and are so small-hard for me to get photos of them.

  3. It's good to see you don't tire from a particular venue.

  4. Outstanding Kinglet. I've taken several, but never as clear. You can even see the yellow crown. They definitely should be diagnosed with ADD. :)
