A 5 Sparrow Day at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge...

Back on February 13th, I had visited Jamaica Bay my usual haunt to scout the area for a scheduled walk I was going to co-lead that weekend. The ponds were pretty much iced over, but I managed to pick up some land birds; I ended up with a 5 sparrow day, that included Fox, Song, White-throated, American Tree and Swamp Sparrows. Later at Canarsie Pier in Brooklyn, I had a good time observing a number of waterfowl close in especially Horned Grebes. Here are some of my photos of that day.
