Birds at Montezuma

posted Apr 3, 2016, 9:01 AM by Phil Spitze
To get out and test a new lens I had rented, I figured a good place would be nearby Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.  The collection of birds did not disappoint, even after a storm rolled through.  Here are some of the new birds (mostly ducks) that I was able to capture.  (The verdict is still out on the lens.)  Please enjoy!

American Coot.

Soaring Gull.

Northern Shoveler.

Bufflehead Duck.

Mother Goose!

Green Winged Teal.

Juvenile Bald Eagle.
