Wednesday Causal Photographers

Seneca River

Today the Montezuma Audubon Center (MAC) scheduled this get-together for photographers. Advertised as a program intended to a help document the plants, animals and habitats around the MAC. Photographic-naturalist Dave Spier is the leader for the event.

This was the third meeting for this series. Previous sessions were held on March 17th and April 14th

Coming upon the MAC at 8:45 AM pulled into the new pond parking area south of the entrance road to the center. There were 5 Canada Geese on the pond. Across the highway in the trees near the turnaround were two birds which I could not identify.

Baltimore Oriole

Telescoping the MAC parking lot I found it empty. Surmising that the event was not going to be held. I drove to the end of the pool and walked to the Tom Noga blind.

From the confines of the blind I viewed 3 Lesser Yellowlegs flittering on the edge of the pond.

From here I drove to several other wildlife management areas.

Here I discovered a nest box being used by a Tree Swallow.

The Montezuma-Carncross Road provided viewing a Bald Eagle and several tree swallows and a Bluebird.

Along the Van Dyne Spoor Open Area two Ring-necked Ducks were gliding on the water.

The day's trek turned out to be like scoring at touchdown after a busted play.
