Some additional images from our trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville NJ. The main attraction here is the Wildlife Drive that circles around the main visitor areas. It is about 8 miles long, one way, circling the main active viewing areas. In the early Spring there are multiple Osprey platforms along the Drive for watching Ospreys building nests and see them feeding their young. They also have multiple trails for exploring and a Visitor Center.
The water and dry grass make an attractive backdrop for the geese!
Yes, I agree! Usually I do not photograph the geese because I would be looking for other bird subjects, Eagles, hawks, swans, etc., but I liked how they were all gathered together.
They look so unusually quiet and peaceful! Great post, Reed.
Thanks so much! It was Great to get out and photograph there again! It was crowded but pretty much everyone was in their cars or standing by them for a few minutes. So it was no problem with “social distancing”!
A great series of photos. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Isabel! It was Great to get out and photograph again!
Beautiful shots of geese and waters. I have never been to Brigantine NWR, nice wildlife drive showing on the map. I need to go one of these days!!
Thanks Donna! It is an interesting NWR. It is the closest NWR to were we live, so we usually go there quite often in normal times. The best time is in Spring and Early Summer. Lots of Ospreys & nests then. One year we even had a Roseate Spoonbill, which really stood out with it’s pink color there! If you want I can email you a pdf ebook I did on the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. Also have an ebook on Blackwater NWR. Just let me know! Thanks again,
Sure, I’d love to see both of your ebooks. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks Reed!
