On Sunday, March 10, Bob and I went for a drive along NYS Route 5, between the Daniel Reed Pier in Westfield to the Dunkirk City Pier in Dunkirk, and NYS Route 60 to McCrea Point Park in Jamestown. We saw a waterfall, seagulls and waterfowl. My earlier blog post was about Barcelona Falls at the Daniel Reed Pier. This blog post is about the seagulls and waterfowl that we saw, while at Lake Erie.
I just missed a bird-in-flight opportunity, as the geese took off the ice and flew overhead. I had returned to the warmth of the car, after taking this photograph of the geese. It was quite windy and COLD at Barcelona Harbor! I jumped out of the car in an attempt to photograph the geese in flight, but I was too late. I did capture a photograph of a seagull flying, though.
Leaving Barcelona Harbor, we drove about 15 miles to Dunkirk. I didn’t find anything to photograph at the Dunkirk City Pier. In fact I didn’t see even one bird.
Leaving Lake Erie behind, we followed NYS Route 60 to Jamestown, where we stopped at McCrea Point Park—the subject of my next blog post.
