Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge (Aug 14, 2009)

Today I visited Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, located in Queens, New York. I have been to Jamaica Bay many times as a birder, but this is the first time I have been there to photograph shorebirds during the fall migration. The hotspot for shorebird photography at this time of year is the East Pond.

Below are a few images from today.

I will be posting more over the next week or so.
