Study Of Some Birds At Barnegat Jetty, February 4th, 2010
The prospect of being "snow-bound" for a few days with my wife, daughter and two year old grandson, was ample reason to get me to drive to Barnegat Light State Park yesterday.
The Top Of The Barngat Lighthouse
What a fortunate decision! The birds were there, in bright sunshine, which ultimately resulted in a fun day for this old picture-taker.
In any event, species seen but not photographed were:
Third Year Bald Eagle
Great Black-backed Gulls
Still, there were lots of Long-tailed Ducks, Scoters, Red-breasted Mergansers, Harlequins and a single 1st Year Male Common Eider to keep my camera busy.
Black Scoter Drake
Surf Scoter Drake
1st Year Common Eider Drake
Long-tailed Duck Drake
Red-breasted Merganser Drake
