Snow Goose Migration and Blackbirds

April 7th, 2008, seetharam

Here are couple of images from Cibola located in the floodplain of the lower Colorado River in Sonoran desert. Winter is the best time to visit this area. It reaches 120 degrees in summer here. Thousands of Snow geese, Canada geese and sandhill cranes stop by here in winter. I live about 175 miles west of this place and often photograph here.

Northern Shoveler and more wallpapers

I had a close opportunity last night with a Northern Shovler. I was setup to capture shorebirds from the ground. This neat looking shoveler just flew right infront of my lens. That was a thrilling experience. Also had an opportunity to photograph Whimbrel very close from the ground.

I finally had a time to process images from my Bosque del Apache, New Mexico trip this past winter. Burrowing Owl and Mule deer images were taken at Cibola National Wildlife Reguge on the way back to home. My sincere thanks to Cibola Refuge staff Robert & Betty Davenport for all their help at the refuge.

I wanted to do a wallpaper that display the concept of my website. I finally finished it today.
