05/12/17 Island Beach State Park

Posted: May 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

A last visit to Island Beach State Park before we get ready to leave for Acadia National Park in Maine. The ospreys were very active and the “bunker” fish were running. The ospreys were returning with fish all day long. One even seemed to show off his catch by passing directly in front of me several times before heading to the nest.
