Birding at Brigantine

This past Monday was delightfully sunny and mild, making for a pleasant stop at the Brigantine Unit of Forsyth NWR just north of Atlantic City. Started the morning with a Clapper Rail venturing out (sort of) from the grasses. Wish I had the time to hang around for hours like the photographer we met, but this photo is at least recognizable.

Another highlight was this Peregrine Falcon on the Osprey perch. Digiscoping the falcon was hampered by the wind, but again, at least passable.

Savananah Sparrows were moving everywhere, and this one gave me a great view. More often, they pop up from the grasses, fly low, then drop and disappear.
