Returning Cranes and more on The Delta, California

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.

Swans, White Geese, and Egret in the Pacific Flyway

 


I took these photos of white swans, white geese, and a white egret in Staten Island Preserve, California. For me, it’s fun to see so many white migratory birds in one of the Pacific Flyway stops in North California.

Encore!

 

Here’s a composite photo of an Encore visit to Staten Island Preserve, California. The photo is a composite of several photos. It’s mostly egrets, sandhill cranes and swans. The weather was stormy. Bad weather didn’t seem to bother any of the wildlife there.

Here are six pictures that I took on a short trip to The San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta Region in California. I took pictures of a Blue Heron, egrets, and swans. It was a beautiful day with the sky and wetlands crowded with  wildlife birds. I used a Nikon D600 FX camera and a Nikon 80 to 400 mm telephoto lens. I also saw a lot of bird watchers too.
