You never know what you will find at Island Beach State Park in New Jersey. On this Sunday, I was lucky to see hundreds of Cedar Waxwings. Normally pretty elusive, I found myself surrounded by so many. Several small groups were perched in this tree. Photographing three in one shot was pretty awesome.

I spent a few days shooting some Hooded Mergansers and Buffleheads in mid-February. Several winter on the estuary behind my house in Toms River. Some were also taken near Monmouth University. These ducks are very timid and quite a challenge to photograph.

02/05/16 Owls in Pennsylvania

Posted: March 12, 2016 in Uncategorized

I visited this mom to be in Pennsylvania. She was sitting on her eggs when her neighbor stopped by to see what all the commotion was about. The squirrel has it’s own hole about 10 feet above the Great Horned Owl’s. Then we took a short ride to see this cute Screech Owl tucked in it’s hole, enjoying the afternoon sun. Thanks to my buddy, Harry Collins, for bringing me to see these amazing owls.

Note: the Great Horned just had her babies … yay!
