Black-throated Blue Warbler Male

The picture of this male Black-throated Blue Warbler was taken in the North Garden at the Jamaica Bay Wildiife Refuge. This part of the Jamaica Wildlife Refuge is my favorite place to be able to photograph migrating songbirds. The picture of this Black-throated Blue Warbler was taken with the Canon EOS5D Mark III with the Canon 100-400mm lens.

American Kestrel

The picture of this American Kestrel was taken at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.I was able to get this picture from the picnic tables near the Visitor’s Center. I usually look for butterflies in that area but the field was mowed back down to a lawn The American Kestrel was perched on the Swallow box and had a clear view of any acitivity in the area.
