I took these photos of some sandhill cranes and an egret on the first dry day after an atmospheric river had just passed by the area. The wildlife seemed to be enjoying and to be taking advantage of a sunny day. For me, it’s always a pleasure to watch the cranes, geese, and egret in the Preserve.
Here are seven photos of sandhill cranes and cackling geese that I took at Staten Island Preserve near Thorton and Walnut Grove, California. These cranes and greese are migratory wild-birds on one of the stops along the Pacific Flyway. For me, I enjoy watching them and photographing them. It was a beautiful day in The Delta.
Here are two groups of photos that I took of returning Sandhill Cranes and other wildbirds on the Pacific Flyway in the Sacramento River Delta Region in California. All the photos were taken along Woodbridge Road and Staten Island Road in The Delta. There were some Sandhill Cranes, a blue heron, some snow geese, an egret, and a snowy egret that I found in nearby ecological preserves. For me, it’s always a joy to see the migratory birds return in the fall and winter months.
Here are 16 photos that I took of wildlife at the Staten Island Preserve in the Sacramento River Delta Region, California. I took some on December 27 when the winter moon was approaching fullness. The rest I took on December 29 when the winter moon was full. For me, I always mentally engaged when I’m photographing wild birds in the Preserve. It’s fun for me. Happy New Year 2021!
I took these ten images on a recent visit to the Sacramento River Delta Region. The wildlife and sunset images that I took are in the Staten Island Preserve, near Walnut Grove, California.
I always enjoy visiting The Delta. It intrigues me with sights and sounds of wildlife on the Pacific Flyway.
Here are seven images that I took last Sunday of cackling geese in flight and sandhill cranes feeding in flooded corn fields. It was a beautiful cool fall day.
Here are eight images that I took of sandhill cranes, a blue heron, and an egret at Staten Island Preserve, California. The Preserve is near Walnut Grove, California . It is in The Sacramento River Delta Region in the Central Valley. The sandhill cranes have recently arrived for the fall season at this Pacific Flyway.
I took these five photos of sandhill cranes along with cackling geese in two wildlife viewing areas. The first one is Staten Island Preserve and the second one is the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve. Both of these viewing areas are along the Pacific Flyway in the Central Valley, California. These migratory birds seem to delight in their winter home.
Here are ten photos that I took of Sandhill Cranes at Woodbridge Ecological Reserve, Lodi, California. The fields in the Reserve are flooded to help create a habitat that cranes like. The cranes like to eat the bugs and insects found in the flooded fields along with the corn stalks left behind after harvest. I enjoy observing and photographing the cranes here.
By the way, the Lodi Sandhill Crane Festival is Friday, November 1, to Sunday, November 3, 2019, for celebrating the return of the cranes.
