Throwback visit to Montezuma Wildlife Refuge

I have a list below of memes I am joining for this week, and to save time I am doing one post for all. They are all fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun  and check out some of the participating posts. Special thanks to all the wonderful host and their memes, I hope you have some time to check them out.

These throwback posts are mainly for our memories. We always enjoy visiting the wildlife refuges in any city or state we are visiting. I have not posted on this Montezuma NWR in the Finger Lake section of New York. The Montezuma NWR almost 10,000 acres, the refuge was established in 1938 for migrating birds and other wildlife. To check out more of my wildlife refuge visits just click on the NWR label on my side bar.

Above top row, a Swan, flycatcher, mallards, more mallards. Middle row some flowers and vegetation, Eastern Kingbird, Great Blue Herons. Bottom row, Great Egret, more Herons, Northern Harrier andBarn Swallow.

Great Blue Herons, Canada Geese and some Mallard Ducks were some of the common birds seen at this wildlife refuge.

While we were touring the Finger Lake area we took a hike to the Taughannock Falls.

This waterfalls was also a great attraction and visit during our trip to the Finger Lakes, New York. I hope you enjoyed the trip and images. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your visits and nice comments. Have a happy day and new week ahead!
