Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary - Green Bay, Wisconsin
Seeing as though I live in Green Bay, Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary (BBWS) is not just close to where I live, it is also home to a mecca of resident and migratory birds. This makes BBWS one of my favorite locations to shoot and spend countless hours in the open air waiting for the keeper shot.
During spring migration BBWS is easily a favorite location for ducks. BBWS is not far from the bay of Green Bay. The ponds and overall habitat attracts many species of ducks. Some may spend a few days as a lay-over location. Others will spend only a few hours and be on their way.

In addition to BBWS there are a number of other birding hotspots I visit and will write about. I picked BBWS as my first write-up, not just because it is my favorite, it is a place you might want to plan to visit and spend a few days taking photos.
As far as camera gear goes, I would recommend the following for overall shooting and flight shots:
I will conclude this post with an assortment 20 of my favorite images taken at BBWS.
