Tern, Tern, Tern

These Terns have the most powerful flight patterns, soaring through the air this way and that way. It was so hard to get a clear picture! They catch fish by diving completely underwater from the air. It is hysterical to watch. They just fall straight down from the sky. I played with this image a bit and really liked the black and white version. The original image, untouched, is below.

The Snowy Egrets and the Great Egrets are arriving in Forsythe. They are in their breeding season as evidenced by the green around the eyes. Always amused as I watch them do their fishing dance. Can never get enough of those bright yellow feet on the Great Egrets!

The Osprey returned to the shore late March, and I have neglected to welcome them back! I hear there are two eggs in the nest in Island Beach State Park. The parents are keeping watch. Let the fun begin!

Spring?

Really? Hard to believe with these fierce winds, hail, snow, freezing temperatures. This is mid April, right? The real feel temperature at the shore was 20 degrees this morning. Cruel!
