Fahnestock Flora

I love moss and Lichen. There was plenty there to photograph. Autumn leaves and rushing streams too. I was luck to catch a kinglet with a large grub. I didn’t have me long lens so missed photographing the others I saw.

Abingdon Rail

Yesterday afternoon on the way home Marc noticed a Tweet announcing a Virginia Rail at Abingdon Square Park, which is a rare occurrence for a very small park. It was a life bird for me. There was about a dozen other birders there, most of whom I know. We had cameras and binoculars, which amused the locals. The Virginia Rail seemed quite comfortable. It was feeding on dozens of worms and dodging around the legs of the people sitting on the benches.

Egg Island and Cape May Harbor

We had a busy day on the 18th of September. First we went to Egg Island Fish and Wildlife Management Area in Cumberland County, NJ. Later on we took a Birding by Boat Tour of Cape May Harbor and Jarvis Sound.

Cape May Wetlands

By the Cape May Lighthouse is a huge wetland area with loads of butterflies.

Cape May NWR

An early morning visit to Cape May NWR. One of several places that we went to on that day. We were almost alone there. It was windy and cool.
