The Long Island Wildlife Photography group always does an amazing job but this might be the best collection of the year.

Thanks to Jim Botta, we have put together 9 pages of some of the best images of the week below.  Some notable finds include Northern Bobwhite, Red-Throated Loon, Ring-Billed Duck, Barrow’s Goldeneye, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker,  Graylag Goose, Harlequin Duck, White-Winged Scoter, and Redhead Ducks.

This week’s cover goes to Michael Sparks with a great Northern Harrier image and don’t miss a few more great videos from Natalie Ann.

If you have a few minutes, try to check out all 9 pages and feel free to share!
