The snow geese below were a fraction of the perhaps 75,000 that were on or around Cayuga Lake that day. It was truly impressive to see and hear them in flight. I couldn't resist snapping the photo of the classic pair of mute swans. One black-capped chickadee is hoping for a handout at Mendon Ponds. The other moved just as I took the picture. I like the combination of the heron and the loosestrife, as well as the green-winged teal and the green water. The next row has a Turkey Vulture soaring above the Great Bend Gorge at Letchworth Park in Fall 1996. The Black-and-white Warbler (pretending to be a woodpecker) and the warblers in the last row are part of the many (25 or so species) that visited the small wooded area on Cobb's Hill this spring.
