Proving that yes, October is also a stellar month at the Jersey Shore. #enjoy #forsythewildliferefuge #gallowaynj #letmemarryyou

Throwing it back #tbt to the day I wound up in the presence of this beautiful Snowy Owl. Snowy Owls are rare in NJ as their normal hunting grounds are in the far north. One speculation for why they appear in NJ has to do with the boom in the population of lemmings in their home territory. This leads to an increase in Snowy Owl reproduction. When those offspring grow up, they get kicked out of their home territories and are more likely to migrate south to find food. It’s not uncommon for them to eat ducks too. Every time I look at the pictures of this bird I am reminded how fortunate I was to find it visiting at the Jersey Shore. It took days of detective work and some good old fashioned luck to find it ... and then only after a long hike into Holgate at the southern tip of Long Beach Island. Even though the owl barely moved for hours, it was incredibly worth the frozen body parts to photograph it and ultimately see it fly. This image was captured under late day sun. * * Edwin B.

A very vocal adult osprey calling out to it's mate and chick in a nearby nest. I lost a lot of blood getting this shot and others as I was in and out of the car and the green flies were slicing and dicing through my skin for hours. Would do it again in a heartbeat, though, to get to see these majestic raptors. #osprey #raptor #birdsofprey #wildlife_seekers #allmightybirds #wildlifephotography #scenicnj #just_newjersey #njisbeautiful #njisntboring #coastaljerseyadventures #southjerseyadventures #sjshowus #wildnewjersey #teamcanon #canonusa #natgeo @wildlifenj #edwinbforsythe #forsythewildliferefuge #njwildlife #wildlifenj #njnature #njaudubon #jerseybirders #wildlifeplanet #usfws @usfws #njspots #your_best_birds @forsythenwr at Edwin B.

Yesterday we made a return trip to Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. I only took a few pictures but we saw a couple dozen types of birds, including Osprey with their fledgling chicks, a black skimmer that flew along and dipped its bill in the water, and terns sharing tiny little fish with each other. The beauty of this place (besides, you know, the actual beauty) is that you can drive around it, remaining cooled by air conditioning and safe from awful biting greenhead flies. It's certainly worth the $4 entry fee per vehicle. #birding #newjersey #nj #wetlands #shorebirds #forsythewildliferefuge at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge

Looking back - eleven months ago - when this beautiful male snowy owl visited the Jersey Shore. On a brutal cold day, it took hours of standing around, nearly seven miles of hiking and a long lens to capture this bucket list bird. It was a thrilling moment to photograph a bird outside of its natural habitat! I am eagerly and patiently awaiting this winter to see if we get a return visit. Edwin B.
