About Me

My photo

Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

Squaw Creek NWR

Last winter asked Mike Hollingshead if he had ever headed down to the Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge south of his place as I had heard there were a couple of hundred eagles hanging around. Well, with Mike's talents with a camera, the rest is history so to speak. Once he went, 10 more trips followed. Be sure to check out his shots HERE.

While not nearly as exciting as Mike's from the winter time for all the geese and eagles, I did have time to swing by and tour their version of the Wildlife Drive (which is about a 10 mile loops as compared to our 7 mile loop in the Sherburne NWR up here), on June 7th before the storms formed just to the south and west.

It's pretty insane when the birds are there. I now wish I would have spent a little more time photographing things, as I really didn't focus on taking quality photos all that much when I was there, did take a few though that kind of indicate just how insane the number of birds is http://www.severechase.com/2-24-09.html Now I live a bit closer to the refuge, so I am looking forward next spring, instead of just being a spectator, I'm looking forward to working on getting a picture or two worthy of framing...
