Readers’ wildlife photographs

February 22, 2020 • 7:45 am

Today’s photos come from Liz Strahle who provides, besides the IDs, the following information (everything she sent is indented):

Attached are some wildlife photographs taken in the last few months. The Long-tailed Duck through the Mute Swan pictures were taken on my first time out on a field trip in New Jersey. These were all taken with the same equipment (Canon EOS T6i and  EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens). I only cropped them and did not edit them as per usual. The rest of the pictures were taken in New Jersey and Massachusetts.

  1. A fine set of birds, especially the aquatic ones. Love them grebes and buffleheads. The mute swan photo was striking…at first glance it looked like a Siamese-twin swan. 🙂
