Another visit to the Barnegat Bay Lighthouse on Feb 15, 2013.
This time the Loons were loony for crabs. I followed one Common Loon for a good hour watching it catch and eat at least 15 crabs. A new one for me was seeing a Harbor Seal in the bay. I saw it very briefly but I did manage to gt one photo of it before it dove.
Besides the usual feathery friends flying and fishing, the USCG were on maneuvers that day and I saw some USCG helicopters flying overhead and some boats crashing through the waves.
Species seen on this day:
Common Loon, winter plumage
On to the photos.
