Below are a few images from my visit to the East Pond of Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge on Monday afternoon. Seen but not photographed were three Wilson’s Phalaropes swimming and foraging in a group with many Lesser and a few Greater Yellowlegs. There was also a group of 10-12 Black-crowned Night-Herons in the northeast corner of the pond.

  • behindthebins: Thanks. For most of these shots I am either lying on the ground (mud) or kneeling looking down into a right angle finder. For the Little Blue Heron, since it was far away I was just kneeling to get the low angle and managed to stay out of the mud!

  • Love that shot of the Little Blue. Are you lying on your belly in the muck to get those shots?
