Beach Preview

UPDATE: I’ve been sick all day with a sore throat/cold thing, so I did not get through the weekend’s photos. Hopefully I can finish them up and post tomorrow…

Tricia and I spent a three day weekend down at the shore, mixing some birding in with a nice getaway. We hit Cape Henlopen State Park in Rehoboth Beach DE, Cape May Point State Park, and the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Galloway, NJ. I took a TON of photos, so it will take some time to sift through them all. I hope to have a complete post together for tomorrow night, but we shall see. Until then, here is my lifer CLAPPER RAIL, one of the first birds we saw at the Edwin B. Forsythe NWR:

Tune in tomorrow for more from the weekend!

  1. Great pictures of the rail. Funny that you got the Clapper Rail as a lifer and I got the Virginia Rail. Good weekend for rails, I guess. So glad you and Tricia had a great mini-vacation!

      I was thinking the same thing about it being a good weekend for rails, pretty funny. We had a great time, boy it was rough getting back to it on Tuesday morning.

    Great shots. It will be great to see the rest of them. I’m having a great relaxing time here in Co……wish I had rented a car tho’ I’m seeing allot, but could see more. It is so beautiful here. I have some trouble getting online here…have to be outside and the sun makes it hard to see. I’ll be posting most of my bird shots when I get home. I did put the hummingbird shots on yesterday tho’.
