Horned Lark

Yesterday, I decided to get up early today and be at Hammonasset Beach State Park by 7 am.  I almost made it – it was more like 7:10 when I rolled into the park.  I was hoping to photograph shorebirds, ducks, raptors, and whatever other species of bird I could find.  I drove around most of the park and it was beginning to look like the pickings were going to be slim, probably because it was a lot windier than I had anticipated.

Just when I was starting to think about plan B, a flock of Horned Larks flew in over my car at the beach at Meigs Point.  I was in the car, so throw my new beanbag support over the window and started photographing (the beanbag worked great, by the way).

The rest of the day turned out great and I have lots of photos to post over the next few days.  This was a good tune up trip for some of the new gear I have and it was a good day for practicing “Bird in Flight” (BIF) photography.
