JB and Brighton

Yesterday Marc, my friend Paula and I went to Brighton Beach and ate lunch at one of the the Russian Restaurants on the boardwalk. I love the OT decorations. The food was good. After that we drove to Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, part of Gateway NRA. It was late afternoon and very windy and atmospheric. A storm was brewing. No snow geese for me yet. I’ll try another time.

Jamaica Bay Flora

Late afternoon soon lights the Phragmites, plants and the broadwalk.

Jamaica Bay Birds

A few of the birds we saw during a short trip to Jamaica Bay.

Jamaica Bay Brant

A huge number of Brant (about) recently came in from Canada and were the stars of the show at Jamaica Bay, Brooklyn, New York. They flew over the path first to the bay then to the pond. They couldn’t decide where to settle. I love the sounds they make (click to play sounds).

JB and FBF

Jamaica Bay and Floyd Bennett Field are part of Gateway NRA, Brooklyn, New York. I added the artichoke at the end because I like the flowers.
