Wanamassa Birds

I frequently stroll the streets of Wanamassa, NJ, with camera at the ready to take pictures of birds.

Old Friends at Shark River Marina

On January 4th, I went down to Shark River hoping to see a variety of ducks.

And of course there were Ruddy Ducks, but not much else within  range.

However, on the water's edge there were both a Killdeer and a Black-bellied Plover (the latter in its mundane winter plumage; it would take a trip to the Arctic to see it at its summer best). These two pictures are scaled differently, the plover is noticeably larger than the Killdeer.

Unusually at the marina I was able to get a reasonably good shot of a Bufflehead. Most of these birds are usually too far out into the water or they immediately take fright and fly away.
