Thanks to the usual help from Jim Botta, we have put together another awesome collection of photos from the Long Island Wildlife Photography group taken this week.

A few standouts include American Coot, Ash-Throated Flycatcher, Barrow’s Goldeneye, Long-Tailed Ducks, Red Crossbill, Wilson’s Snipe, Snow Goose, Snow Bunting, and a great collection of Raptors.

This week’s cover shot goes to Brian Doherty with some Dunlins and Sanderling over the surf.
