The Long Island Wildlife Photography group shared some fantastic photos this week and thanks to Jim Botta we have compiled some of the best photos and videos on the 9 pages below.   Highlights this week include Eastern Screech Owls, a Minke Whale, Indigo Bunting, Clapper Rail, and a Chukar.   There are also some fantastic shots of a variety of chicks, hatchlings, nestlings, and fledglings.

This week’s cover shot goes to Luisa Pericoli with a great shot of a group of Black Skimmers.  Also don’t miss some more great videos by Natalie Ann on the last page.

If you have time try to check out all 9 pages and feel free to share!
