With the spring migration season in full swing, I decided to head back out to the Barnegat Lighthouse State Park on May 14, 2013 to see what new birds arrived. I also wanted to get more familiar with the new camera and lens.
This time I actually started on the bay side first then worked my way to the trail. The usual winter residents were at the bay getting in some sun and fun with a few Ruddy Turnstones doing some yoga on the jetty.
By the trail, I managed to find a few new migrants such as, a female Black-throated Blue Warbler, A male and female Eastern Towhee and a Great-crested Flycatcher. Some year round residents were also in the trail like the House Finches and one in particular that was posing proudly for me. it was like he knew he was being photographed.
