Jersey Birds

January 23, 2014

Linking up with NF Winged   and  Skywatch Friday 

I am sharing more New Jersey skies and birds from our visit last week. We were up early to check out the sunrise. We were hoping for a clear and pretty sky, we were not disappointed.  Before heading for home we made a quick stop back the the Edwin Forsythe NWR.



A view of the moon setting from our room.It was a day after the full moon.


Sunrise rising above the Atlantic Ocean



A flock of Brant


A couple of Brant..they are a small goose. I think they are more attractive than the Common Canada Goose.


A view of Atlantic City and sky from the Edwin Forsythe NWR.


Some Snow Geese seen at the wildlife refuge.


On this morning the Snowy Owl was out on the field or marshy land.  We saw it flying some landing in different places along the wildlife drive.

Thank you for visiting my post, I hope you enjoyed my birds and Atlantic City sunrise.

To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and to see more of the winged critters check out NF Winged

Thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday! Thanks to Monica the host of NF Winged.   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.
