The Long Island Wildlife Photography group passed yet another milestone this week, 16,000 members! Thanks to everyone that helps make this such a fantastic community.
Dan Fiore has a knack for finding some of the rarest birds that visit Long Island and did again this week with the Chukar below.
This little game bird, originally introduced from Eurasia, is usually at home in high desert plains of Western North America, Hawaii and New Zealand. Nice find!
Other highlights this week include a nice selection of warblers, shorebirds starting to show breeding plumage and the first babies of the year including the Cygnets on the cover shot by Daryl Ramrattan. Thanks to Jim Botta for helping pick out another incredible selection of photos this week on the ten pages below. We also have a full page of videos on the last page. Have a great weekend, stay safe, and feel free to share!
