What better way to celebrate the arrival of Spring than by spending a day at the beach?!  A little rain was in the forecast but who cares?  A rainy day at the beach is better than a sunny day anywhere else!  P.S.  It didn’t rain at all, but the clouds added some nice interest to the sky!

Two Dark-eyed Juncos and an American Goldfinch share a branch during last week’s snowstorm.  They were frequenting the feeding station nearby that was filled with sunflower seeds, wild bird food, and suet, so they were quite content, despite the less than optimal weather conditions.

I can’t pass up a nice sunrise … even if I only photograph it with my iPhone.  With me enjoying first light were a few geese and ducks on the lake.  It was a beautiful way to start the day!

When I visited Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area last month at sunrise for the snow goose migration, WNEP-TV from Wilkes-Barre, Pa. was on hand to film a segment for Pennsylvania Outdoor Life.  Host Don Jacobs and Middle Creek Manager, Lauren Fenstermacher, along with WNEP’s cameraman were filming as the sun came up on a very cold morning.  The episode of PA Outdoor Life aired last night and guess who made a cameo appearance?  Me!  There I am in the screen shot on the left wearing the green parka and tan hat – right around the 4:46 minute mark in the video segment.  Here’s a link to watch the episode, which is a really great way to get a feel for sunrise during migration at Middle Creek.  http://wnep.com/2017/03/19/snow-goose-migration-at-the-middle-creek-wildlife-management-area/

This is a favorite old barn that I’ve photographed several times over the years.  Each time I visit, it appears that a little more TLC is needed to keep it going.  There used to be horses in this field at one time.  Now the fence that protected them is in need of repair.  I’m glad that I’ve gotten to know this old barn and had the opportunity to photograph it before it becomes too late.
