“Cape May-gration” images

Having recently been given the opportunity to “stop and smell the roses” a little more, this week (long story,) I took the opportunity to work on my photography ;).

There were many AMAZING birds around Cape May, Cumberland and Atlantic counties, some more elusive then others- other lifebirds that had to be “earned” through patience (Mississippi Kite, Curlew Sandpiper and Red Necked Phalarope for example.)

As is to be expected, the programs were amazing! I particularly enjoyed the Shorebirding series with Kevin Carlson and Weather and Migration with David LaPuma. When you throw in the added bonus of meeting great authors, birders and photographers, and the “who’s who” of NJ Birding. You can’t buy that kind of experience!

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s this weekend’s story as seen through my lens:

Handsome, breeding plumage Black-bellied Plover - Heislerville

Semipalmated Plover mating ritual, Heislerville

Wings over Heislerville

"you can't see me"

Swan Family at the Meadows

European Starling - still pretty birds to me.

Yes, I know I can't "count them" but the Peacocks of Galloway are pretty sexy birds.
