Great Crests and Waxwings

Well, I don’t want to crash your browser but I was very busy this spring, and I had some luck for sure, and I’m keen to share. I was desperate to find a new wildlife haunt and I may have found it in Tourne Park, here in Boonton/Denville. Although I swear my spot is devoid of life the last 3 times I’ve been. But it was buoyant for a time, that I could get out of the studio at 5 and go shoot until sundown, seeing the same Redheaded Woodpecker, Northern Flicker, Downy and occasionally a Pileated Woodpecker, the latter three which I will profile here soon.

From the Scarlet Tanager to the Great Crested Flycatcher and the Eastern Kingbird, I learned new species and got to attach them to great memories of distinct behavior. It was an education not to be forgotten. Well, on to the goods, thanks for viewing!

  1. Especially nice pics! Loved the colorful tanager, bluebird, oriole, and tree swallow. Amazing capture of the cormorant and fish!

  2. Have not seen your site in a while and saw your name on my visitor list. You have been busy 😀. The bird ID you need, looks to be a juvenile Bald Eagle. And Denville NJ, a blast from my past. Denville Shack, Docks Diner. Glad I stopped by.
