Scenes in Forsythe

I used my wide angle Nikon 14-24 mm 2.8 f lens for these photographs taken at Edwin B. Forsythe NWR, except for the last one with the grasses.

Birds in Forsythe

My main goal at E. B. Forsythe NWR was to see some Snow Geese – mission accomplished. We also saw a Snowy Owl way off in the marsh and an immature Bald Eagle. It is so relaxing to drive around the loop with my scope and camera. The weather on Sunday was shirtsleeve warm.

Leeds Point

On Sunday we drove down to Edwin B. Forsythe NWR in New Jersey. We stopped at the Oyster Creek Restaurant for a seafood dinner out in the wetlands on the way home. Out back there were boats camouflaged for duck hunting. In the first photograph there is a deer made of grasses in the far right. I didn’t see it until I looked closely at the photograph. I’ll be posting more in the next couple of days.

Forsythe Landscapes

After an unsuccessful attempt at house hunting in NJ on Friday. We went to E. B. Forsythe NWR in the afternoon. It was a rainy and very buggy. The little specks in the mud are all the shorebirds. Details in next post.
