World Bird Sanctuary, Fenton, Mo, 200108
Having rested for 48 hours was more than my daughter could do…and on Sunday she came downstairs with a plan to drive to the World Bird Sanctuary …update on 8 March, their blog is at
…so off we went.
The big joke was that we came from balmy Bangalore to visit them, and ….all the outdoor shows (including the raptor exhibits) were “Closed Because of Extreme Cold”! We did laugh.
DISCLAIMER: I did NOT bring the 20D or the 300mm Canon lens…all I had was my little Canon S3…so what quality of pictures you see, is what quality of pictures you get! Also, it was either very harsh light off the grey skies one minute, or low light the next….so…
The Visitors’ Center did have a few birds sitting on the sign, as if to welcome us…
Let me close with my “signature” photograph (either sunrise or sunset or moonrise or moonset, in this case, the third of the lot):
Coming up next, Lone Elk Park, the Elk, the American Bison, the beauty of a dry landscape in winter….with a sundown pic there, too….
Thanks to DnA who took us there!
