Thanks to Jim Botta we picked out just some of the best photos posted by the Long Island Wildlife Photography group this week below.  If you haven’t joined yet, feel free to do so.  You certainly don’t need to be a great photographer to join and I promise you will see a lot of things you would never see otherwise.

A few notable finds this week include a Spotted Towhee, Rough Legged Hawk, Red-Shouldered Hawk, and a wide variety of more common birds dealing with the winter elements.

This week’s cover shot is a beautiful Male Wood Duck by Jim Colligan.
