This Jersey Girl traveled Naples, Florida in December 2015 and saw 22 life birds in one week! I also worked on my digiscoping skills.
My favorite time of year is when all of the birds begin to return to the Jersey Shore. Osprey once again rule the sky, and the beaches are filled with small, scurrying shorebirds like Piping Plovers. I saw this pair along Fisherman's Path on Sandy Hook North Beach on Friday, March 25.
