Gary E. McDannell Photos, Beaver Island Park - April 2013

Left photo: The first picture is of Bonaparte Gulls in the West River near Circle Drive in the park. This species is migratory and usually are found in their summer range in the higher latitudes in Alaska and Canada. However, since the breeding season started some time ago the ones we are seeing in the river are here to stay for the entire year. This species breeds close to bogs and lakes in coniferous forests mostly across Alaska and Canada. They nest in trees and occasionally on the ground.
Right photo: Picture number two shows how Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets share resources. In this case perches on the fallen trees and fishing habitat. The picture was taken in the newly rehabilitated Lagoon habitat in our southerly park.
Left photo: Just for fun I have also attached yet another Blue Heron picture that I took a few days ago. Yes I know I am going to be known as Grand Island's Own Blue Heron Photographer, but this is a pretty neat picture.
Right photo: Tree Swallow that was taken along the East River.

Beaver Island Park Residents - March 2013


Gary E. McDannell photos - click for larger view.
The Deer and the Great Blue Heron were photographed on Tuesday, March 5th, The Opossum was photographed at the circle on Monday, March 4th. Gary wrote "the cute little guy ran out in front of my car just as I was getting out to take a walk. I was concerned at first because this species is mostly nocturnal, and this was the first time that I have ever seen one out in early afternoon. However, the Opossum was running, and he made a beeline for what I think was his favorite tree in the center of the circle. Therefore, I don't think that he was sick or incapacitated by rabies, he just wanted to get to the other side of the road." Thanks Gary!
