We spent two days at Billy Frank Jr Nisqually NWR, inspired by report
of the Bittern sighting. Did not see the Bittern, did see from the Twin
Barns Trail loop in the wetland restored area literally thousands of
waterfowl, mostly too far for my camera. Did get very good images of
Pintails. Best of the day was photo in flight of five Trumpeter Swans
circling in tight formation. A hand held image shot from wheelchair on
the gravel path, in the rain with camera in waterproof enclosure. D-850
with Nikkor 200-500,1/2,000th sec, ISO 2,500, f/13 using burst mode. Got
LUCKY. Posted on my website birdsbydave.com under Waterfowl Pat was
pushing wheelchair for me; we were "walking and rolling in the rain."
