Every time I think the Eastern Bluebirds have left, they return. These were taken on Day 40.

Headed to one of my favorite places for birds. There wasn’t much going on, but spring was in the air.

I haven’t seen the Eastern Bluebirds for a few days. I’m pretty sure they have moved on. But, it has been an awesome month while they were here. Hopefully, they will make this their winter stopover.

I spend six hours looking for the Snowy Owl. No luck finding the Snowy, but there’s always something to photograph at Island Beach.

I’m lucky, my townhouse is on an estuary and backs up to protected lands. The birds that visit throughout the year are pretty awesome. Here is a taste of a typical day out back.

The weather has been pretty brutal lately. Usually look like this while chasing Snowy Owls. No wonder she hides from me.
