02/21/16 Cedar Waxwings / Island Beach

Posted: March 22, 2016 in Uncategorized

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.

    Beautiful! The birds look like paintings! Well done, Ray!

  3. Ray, thank you for these beings of light. Both Jeanette and I are being greatly challenged lately, so your reminder of wild creatures doing exactly what they’re supposed to be doing is an enormous gift. Sets things in perspective. What a blessing to come upon so many – I think, Ray, more than I’ve ever seen in my whole life put together. All the best — here’s to bountiful Island Beach! c
