Default Wetlands variety from the other day.

I am not very good at song bird ID. So if anyone can name this little guy I would appreciate the help.

After doing a little research on my own I have determined that this is most likely a Yellow-rumped Warbler.

This Peregrine Falcon was very cooperative. He stayed on this perch for over 30 minutes while I just snapped away. He left several time but returned shortly each time.

A nice variety of duck and geese enjoying the safety of the refuge.
I can see Northern Shovelers, Pintails, White Fronted Geese and Green Wing Teal.

Finally a Red-Shouldered Hawk surveying the landscape in the morning sun.

Man, I love this refuge!

Steve, all of these are very nicely done, my favorite being the flock of ascending ducks, they almost look 3D. Thanks for posting these!

That hawk has a strait back look that somehow reminds me of an old first sergent I once knew. some nice pics can see why you like the place.
