Osprey Photos from Hammonasset Beach State Park

I had the day off today and visited Hammonasset Beach State Park.  I was hoping that maybe I would catch some of the migratory birds coming in, but I think because it’s been such a cold, wet Spring, the migrations may be slightly behind this year. At the park, I walked out to Willard’s Island, […]

Turkeys in Litchfield County, Connecticut

Turkeys in Litchfield County, Connecticut

I saw these Turkeys in a field in Litchfield County, Connecticut close to Litchfield and was able to quickly take some shots of them before they headed back into the woods.  There was a flock of about a dozen and they didn’t seem in too big of a hurry.

Sanderling at Hammonasset Beach State Park

Sanderlings at Hammonasset Beach State Park

These photos were taken on a very windy day in the Autumn of 2010 at Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison, Connecticut.  The Sanderlings were running in and out with the surf (as Sanderlings tend to do) and feeding on these little mussels.  They are pretty funny little birds. Hammonasset Beach State Park, located on Long Island Sound, is […]
