Off to Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, NY


I am going to this refuge next week.

It will only be my second time at Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge even though it is less than one hour from Niagara Falls and a place I have passed numerous times. Two pair of eagles nest at this preserve. I have shown the nest sites on GWGT last spring. I also showed the osprey nest and parents with images of this huge Refuge on GWGT.


These are all images from last spring, but I assume I will be getting the same birds again this outing.


The Green-winged Teal photo in my header was taken here last year. It was the first time I saw a teal too. I never saw that Ring-necked duck in the photo below either.


One common bird is the Great Blue Heron. Maybe this year I will find the rookery. That or catch a heron doing something other than standing like a statue.


A flyby…way up high.


Wish me luck finding birds and some good birding weather too. I hope the recent storms did not devastate your area. It was very windy here too, but so far, so good.

  3. I look forward to seeing what you find this trip! Looking at these is like looking at many of our ‘regulars’ that have been with us in Florida for many months – I’m glad some of them have promised to stay here. Enjoy~!
