Cape May, New Jersey
Cape May Point

This pretty bird was spotted in a suburban yard. The Palm Warbler "is found in two different forms. Birds that breed in the western part of the range are duller, and have whitish bellies. Those breeding in the eastern part of the range are entirely yellow underneath."

Last year (October 6-12) I traveled to southern New Jersey for "Cape May Magic" an American Birding Association workshop conducted by Mark Garland and Pat & Clay Sutton . It was a wonderful week of birding and learning about birds, although it was rainy and very windy. The storm, a nor'easter (a cyclonic storm that moves along the east coast of North America. It’s called “nor’easter” because the winds over coastal areas blow from a northeasterly direction) , lasted most of the week. As a result, the conditions were generally very challenging for bird photography. Despite the weather, I enjoyed it so much that I spent another five days there in mid-October 2014. Due to its location at the end of a peninsula bordered by Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Cape May , New Jersey is a migrant trap and one of the top birding destinations in North America.

This photoblog is my nature journal and travelogue. Many of my wildlife images were made in environments impacted by humans. My goal is to feature each animal in a way that allows the viewer to sense the essence of its life in the wild. The purpose of the accompanying narratives is to enhance awareness and appreciation of our natural world, as well as to inspire everyone to protect and care for it.

Although this image was incredibly beautiful. But it's all your photos. I get a little jealous because I want to be as good I agree. But I train on it. When I'm in here on Aminus I always start by looking at your page. I believe that you are the best bird photographers here

Il semble rechercher la protection de la souche, ce petit oiseau aux belles couleurs.

A sweet little study - showing more of the setting adds to the sense of presence here.
