A few quick images from this morning on Barnegat Bay, New Jersey

6:31 AM, muted sunshine. “Here I come. Fishies, look out!!!”


Thirty seconds later…”Walking along, my merry way… Doo de doo!”

 

6:54 AM, clouds over sun. “This is my ‘stalking’ pose…reeaddy to POUNCE!!!”


 Five seconds later… “Yahheeiahhh!”

    Not to be “the obnoxious one” but this is a GREAT EGRET, not a Snowy! The Snowy is smaller, has a black beak (not yellow, although there is a small yellow area at the top of the beak) and has higher set wings. Otherwise, nice pictures and I very much enjoy your blog.

      Quite the contrary. I appreiciate the correction, and welcome the education. We live next to a wildlife refuge with a lot of impressive shore birds, including an Osprey nest with two “chicks” or I guess “eyass,” currently in residence with the parents. Thanks for your comment. M 🙂
