  1. Came across a small group of Glossy Ibis yesterday in south NJ that were in close & I could actually see what they were feeding on which appeared to be big, fat earthworms. I was wondering though, do earthworms occur in saltmarshes? I thought maybe they might be some type of marine worm that happen to look like earthworms.

  5. I remember the first time I saw this behavior I thought the bird had died. I guess it gets exhausting holding up that big beak all the time!
  6. I always keep an eye out for Cuckoos & Orioles whenever I see a nest, they seem to love them!

  8. This is an old shot & I know this is a bird but it's the situation that was unusual. I thought it was strange this heron was staying put & not taking off as I got closer. After looking carefully I realized the Heron's left foot had actually frozen in place while it was roosting & it couldn't move if it wanted to. Happily when I returned later it had warmed up enough for it to get free & it had departed. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this happen?
