Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge (Aug 17, 2009)

Black-bellied Plover

Black-bellied Plover

Below are images captured on Monday at the East Pond of Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. A notable bird present on the pond was an American Golden-Plover, but it remained in a flock of Black-bellied Plovers (and other birds), so I was not able to capture a good image.

Lesser Yellowlegs (Tringa flavipes) (East Pond, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge)

Black-bellied Plover (Pluvialis squatarola) with fading breeding plumage (East Pond, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge)

The ubiquitous and much-maligned Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) (East Pond, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge)

  • Thanks Tim. Getting down on the ground (mud) provides an excellent perspective on birds and helps eliminate distracting elements. So far, most of the good birds have stayed a little farther away than I would like (using a 600mm + 1.4 teleconverter), but I am going back a few more times, so I’m hoping for some closer captures.

    You’ve captured some really nice images here, Clarence. I especially like the water level perspective and the separation from the background in all of them. Great stuff!
