Sunrise Shorebirds and Warblers - A Day Outing

Photographed on April 8, 2018

I started the day with my good friend Scott Keys as we spent the morning laying the in marsh at sunrise.  There were a bunch of Snowy Egrets and a few other shorebirds feeding in the area which was nice.  Next we found another spot with great light and worked with some Short-billed Dowitchers and Least Sandpipers.  After the light got too harsh we scouted another nearby spot for Prothonotary Warbler and found one which was nice even though the light was really tough. I ended the day scouting another location for Kentucky Warblers and didn't find any so I found a Prairie Warbler and finished the day with that.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
