A couple of hours at the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge.

On the Sunday of the Memorial Day Holiday weekend, Pam and I headed to the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge for a day trip. It had been a couple of years since we visited this refuge and we were anxious to see the changes. We arrived about 8:30 am at the brand new visitor center at the refuge. What an amazing structure. It is well worth taking some extra time to explore.

We were greeted by a smiling young lady behind the desk by the name of Kara who was very informative about the happenings in the refuge. Some damage has been experienced from a thunder storm that rolled through the area the previous night but a lot of the areas were still accessible. We spent the next couple of hours driving around and photographing the wildlife in the refuge.

Please enjoy the images. Remember to click on them to enlarge them. These images are not always posted on my other sites so please contact me if you are interested in aquiring any of them.

The Tree Swallows were active and colorful.

This Sharp-shinned Hawk was unconcerned with our presence and stayed
focused on hunting along a refuge road.

These Eastern Bluebirds, another of my favorites were happy to pose for us.

It wasn't until I got home later in the day that I was able to identify this
sleeping beauty as a Porcupine. It looked like a large unidentifiable blob
until I blew it up on the computer screen. He looks very content.



  1. cool! i have never seen a porcupine before! thanks for sharing! :)
