I wanted to go out and hopefully see some of the birds I am seeign people reporting. I decided to visit one of our beautiful local parks, Sperr Memorial Park. This is not only a beautiful park, but… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 122. Today we spent the day bird watching at one of my places to go visit. We went to Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge sits at the northern end of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. As we left in the morning it was bright and sunny. But as we arrived at Montezuma the clouds had settled in and it was… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 116. Today I stopped by one of two local Osprey nests located on the Chemung River in Elmira, New York. The Osprey have been back in the area for a little while now with the return of spring. I keep hearing reports of them being on their nests. However, I have not yet made my way to see them this spring. I decided today was a… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 100. I spent this morning at one of our local parks hoping to photograph migratory birds that tend to show up around this time of year each year. Unfortunately, the migratory birds did not make an appearance today. Hopefully I will see them soon. So, no migratory bird photos or observations. But a day outside enjoying some fresh air, nature, and watching some birds is still… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 93: Today I spent some time at one of our local parks looking for migratory birds to photograph. It is the time of year migratory birds start arriving in and moving through our area in New York. There is a local park right in my home town with a small lake that seems to be a regular stop over for many birds migrating up farther north…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 81. Another beautiful day for bird watching at home. Warm temperatures. Bright sunlight. And Plenty of bird activity. I started off todays post work day birding with a walk around the yard. I wanted to see if there are any bird happenings that I couldn’t observe from the deck. Mourning doves were perched high in a tree. The titmice and black-capped chickadees flitted about the grape… Read More

One phot a day challenge: Day 80. Today was a perfect day for birding. The weather was great. The sun was out. And the birds were active. One of the reasons we chose to live where we do is the access to nature it provides. We have a nice yard with woodlands surrounding us. And we have trees distributed across the yard for birds to move through. We have multiple bird feeders… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 79. The first day of spring was a beautiful day. Got out for a nice run. Checked a lot of things off the to do list. I saw that today was supposed to be nice weather. I tried to plan and be prepared. Seemed like it would be a good day to try to photograph some of the early spring birds that have been showing up… Read More

One photo a da y challenge: Day 72. Today I was able to get out and take photographs multiple times. I have not done that in quite some time. Went for a run with some friends early in the morning. I was able to take my camera with me. Photographed a little of the scenery around the Chemung River. Later I went outside in our yard to play with our dogs. And… Read More

One of the best things about nature is that it can quite literally exist anywhere. It is in the smallest things. And it is in the most mundane things. If we just open our eyes we can find nature. When we think of nature our minds often conjure up images of the grandiose. We think of the impressive, expansive nature that often feels too unattainable. In that we often lose the ability… Read More
