    We are particularly interested in photographing Birds. One of our favorite places to visit is Conowingo Dam which is located on the border of Pennsylvania and Maryland. There we observed Eagles searching the churned up waters for fish. There are other birds which also frequent this area along the Susquehanna River feeding on the numerous fish by the dam.

    Looking at a bird close-up can teach you a lot about its habits and habitat. For instance cardinals primarily are ground feeders of berries and seeds. As a rule they are permanent residents of their area. As does the cardinal, many birds stay in the same location their whole lives, while others migrate when cold and snowy winters take away their warmth and food supplies. Over the past several years snow geese have become more and more prevalent in our area during the winter months. They usually spend their nights on bodies of water such as the Merrill Creek Reservoir in Harmony Township, NJ. Early in the morning they fly to neighboring fields to feed and return again in the evenings. When the weather becomes warmer the snow geese fly north to their summer homes. Little ruby throated humming birds will migrate south in the fall as they rely primarily on insects and nectar which isn’t abundant in freezing climates. As the weather warms, flowers grow and insects appear, the little birds work their way back north to where they were hatched. Other birds such as wrens, sparrows and chickadees, stay in the same areas all year round. When their food supply dwindles they often rely on humans to set up feeding stations. Remember, once you begin to feed the birds, they become reliant on the seeds you provide so don’t stop feeding them until spring arrives again!
