First of all we want to wish everyone a Happy Fathers Day!  Why not kick it off with a huge gallery of photos from the Long Island Wildlife Photography?  By the looks of the photos this week, there are tons of new fathers on the wildlife scene with some fantastic photos of chicks and immature birds.  Thanks to Jim Botta for the help in getting the photos together!

This week some notable finds include Clapper Rail, Bridled Tern, Great Crested Flycatcher, Sand Hill Crane, Tri- colored Heron, Little Blue Heron, and Eastern Kingbird.

This weeks cover goes to Jacqueline Elizabeth Stoll with a great shot of Great and Snowy Egrets together.
