This week the Spring Migration continued and the Long Island Wildlife Photography group did an outstanding job capturing a stunning variety birds.  Now that the trees have mostly filled in, it is getting much tougher to see and photograph many of the smaller birds.

Below you will see some really nice finds including a  Kingbird, Northern Parula, Cuckoo Bird, Red-Headed Woodpecker and a Blackburnian Warbler.

We also don’t limit ourselves to just birds as you will see turtles, foxes, raccoons, butterflies and even a Spotted Salamander below.

In case you missed it, we are now featuring a bird of the week feature every Tuesday written by Dianne Taggart of LI and featuring outstanding photos submitted by the group.

The American Oystercatcher was featured this week, click here if you missed it.

This week’s cover shot goes to Vicki Jauron with a fantastic image of cooperating Least Terns.

Take a few moments to check out the 35 images below!
