    Field trip! No CP's but some awesome pics... 56k warning!

    i'm home on spring break and it was a GORGEOUS day outside, so me and my mom went to Morton Nat'l Wildlife Refuge over in Southampton (NY). the birds there are so tame they will eat out of your hand... and even if they're not doing that they sit prettily for pictures

    it was the first real outing for my new toy... a shiny new 5 mp Canon Powershot S2 IS. this baby ROCKS. now imagine what i could do with the telephoto attachment.... *drools* (the pics did get compressed a little weirdly on Photobucket, for the record!)

    chow time!


    woodpecker (species?)


    cardinal who was definitely a show off... sat there for five whole minutes


    another chickadee


    SKUNK CABBAGE!! (i'm sorry, it's just a neat plant!!!)

    Chickadees will eat from a hand anywhere. It's the nature of that particular beast. Get a cardinal to eat out of your hand and that will be some serious tame.

    Great pics! Thanks for sharing. Reminds me of Stanley Park in Canada, I always had chickadees eating from my hand and squirrels running up my legs, lol. Thanks

    Great photos. Love the cardinal. They are such shy, skittery birds. When I was a little kid, I'd be over my grandmother's house and she'd open the window in a back bedroom and hold her hand out with some food in it (don't know what), call out and a cardinal would come eat out of her hand. One of those old memories you don't ever forget...
