Birdathon 2012- Steigerwald NWR

Good people, good weather, 53 good birds.

It started out cool with a few clouds that quickly burned off.

The elusive American Bittern

An Osprey pair where busy nest building and calling to each other.

Last year there was a lot of Osprey action too.

My favorite bird of the day: Western Kingbird

Tree Swallows

Purple Martins

It's a beautiful refuge.

A perfect day.


  1. Awesome photos ! If I may ask , what type of camera and lens do you use ?

    1. Thank you! I have a Canon EOS 40D. I usually use a 75-300mm lens (all the photos in this post were taken with that).

  2. Fun photos! So glad for good weather and entertaining people, right?

  3. What a gorgeous place. Your photos are wonderful.

  4. Wish I could have been there- looks like you had a great day for it... Awesome that you found a kingbird!
