Birding has become a new hobby for me. It compliments my passion for photography. The more I get involved, the more I am learning. It is the 2nd most popular hobby and there are a lot of people out there that know something about birds. I meet them all the time. I will also share my latest bird pictures among the list. They have all been spotted in either Pennsylvania or New Jersey.
1. South Florida
This Pelican flew overhead at Barnegat Lighthouse State Park.
"Be Careful What You Fish For". It is about a Pelican rescue I witnessed in Jupiter, Florida, a few years back. It was incredible to watch, there is also a short video. It was one of my first blogs and remains one of my favorite,
2. Cape May, New Jersey
3. Southeast Arizona
This Oyster Catcher was spotted in Cape May at the Conservancy. He was inconspicuously walking away from me as if I wouldn't notice he or she was one among about 50 seagulls on the Cape May coast. He obviously wasn't aware, I have a bird brain.
4. Upper Texas coast
5. Point Pelee, Ontario
6. Lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas
7. Churchill, Manitoba
It is very cool how the Black Skimmer......skims. This one was skimming in Cape May. You are sunning, they are skimming.
8. Kidder County, North Dakota
The Belted Kingfisher looks like a blue Woody Woodpecker to me. He was in the bay area of Holgate, Long Beach Island.
9. Pribilof Islands, Alaska
Ruddy Turn stones were discussing whether or not they will pose for me.
I must have charmed them. We both picked the same block to vacation at this year on our way to migration and hibernation, Long Beach Island, New Jersey.
10. Klamath Basin
