birdwatchers

please click on photo for greater detail.


I have passed this viewing deck at robert moses at least a zillion times and have never once seen anyone on it. as I was leaving the beach yesterday I couldn't help but notice this group of people with gigantic cameras and heavy duty binoculars looking up at the sky. of course we had to look up and right at that moment, a hawk was flying directly over our heads. it was pretty cool. I wonder if someone on the deck has a blog and wrote about it or maybe posted their photographs.

That IS pretty cool. It's be cool to see the photos. I'd like to join a bird group here in the city. I just need to find time to find the group. ;-)

I know there's a nature and wildlife photography group here on the Island...I bet they have a website...the name of the group just escapes me at the moment.

I love that you got the lighthouse in the background.

This is a familiar sight here in NJ too. Cape May is loaded with birders all the time. Your shot is great with the lighthouse in it.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Lovely photos on yours....glad there were some birders at last at the birdwatch site. I saw a bald eagle today and couldn't stop the car fast enough to get a picture. They always thrill me.

Paz, I bet Central Park has some good bird watching. I love watching (& listening too) the birds in my garden.

Thanks Bettye & Bobbie.
