The Long Island Wildlife Photography group had a great week, capturing some fantastic wildlife shots with some great Autumn backgrounds.   We are getting new winter arrivals now almost daily as the Fall migration is winding down.  Notable finds this week include Ash-throated Flycatcher, Black-Billed Cuckoo, Blue-Winged Teals, Cattle Egret, Winter Wren, still plenty of raptors, and Humpback Whales.

I had trouble picking out just on cover shot this week so went with a combination.

Thanks to Jim Botta for the help and feel free to share with your friends!
