Amherstview Sewage Lagoons

Hudsonian Godwit
(30 September, 2006)

This was a new bird for my life list. There was only one at the Lagoons that I could find. He was cooperative for pictures as long as I kept my distance, although he was moving most of the time, making it a challenge for the digiscope process.

Lesser Yellowlegs

American Pipit

There were lots of American Pipit, Canada Geese, Bonaparte's Gulls, and Yellowlegs.

Hi Larry. Good to hear from you. I've added two links to your site on my blog, one under Links and one under Birds. Your pictures are breathtaking. I really enjoyed your artistry.

I usually make my first trip to Amherst just before Christmas.

The Ivory-billed Woodpecker
The most endangered bird species in this country.

On February 27, 2004, Bobby Harrison, of Huntsville, Alabama and Tim Gallagher of Ithaca, New York, rediscovered the magnificent ivory-billed woodpecker, long believed to be extinct in the Big Woods of eastern Arkansas. This was after more than 60 years since last confirmed sighting of the species in the United States by two qualified searchers. Their own quest culminated in this miraculous find after spending more than 30 years of researching and following leads.
The rediscovery has produced waves of excitement in the world of conservation and beyond. It has been hailed by ornithologists, birders, conservation organizations and the media as a Victory for Nature; and highlights the need to preserve the world’s critical habitats. Rediscovering the ivory-billed woodpecker, long thought to be extinct, provides a rare SECOND CHANCE to save a species
