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 ten images that I took of snow geese at Staten Island Preserve, California. The snow geese are among the last migratory arrivals here in The Delta which is part of the Pacific Flyway. They will soon be leaving to return north for the summer season. For me they are fun and colorful to watch and to photograph.

Here are five pictures of some tundra swans and cackling geese enjoying one of their favorite spots along the Pacific Flyway. Staten Island Preserve is surrounded by levees in The Delta. I turned my VW Eurovan into a mobile blind. I set up a tripod with a gimbal to support a telephoto lens inside the van where I could sat to shoot photos with the side door open. For me, I had a lot of fun and enjoyment too. And there’s a lot to be thankful too.
