Taking advantage of the mild weather this week here in Western Massachusetts was a priority for me. I took a ride to the Audubon sanctuary near my area to search for images along the Connecticut River Valley. The valley is a major flyway for migrating birds annually and is abundant with wildlife. Acting on a good tip from friend and fellow photographer Dale Monette we made the trip. We were rewarded with a day of photographing Red Tails, Sharp-shinned hawks and Northern Harriers. Here is one of the captures of the day.
