Barnegat Birds and Backyard Visitors

Some of the birds from the wildlife refuge behind us.

The neighbor's hummingbird feeder has a few guests.

Catching an egret in a tree while on a bike ride.

Home in B-burg - a box turtle.  We haven't seen one of these in many years.

And then there was this toad.  During a rainstorm he was trying to get away from all the water.

If this were the wild west they would be on horseback.  Don't know how many horses are in those tractors.  At least they turned them off to talk.


  1. That turtle has different colour from the ones which lives in our country. :)

    So lovely photos...

  2. LOVE the box turtle...haven't seen one of those for a long time, good to know there are still a few around! TFS!

  3. Nature is alive and well at your end!

  4. How lovely to see the tortoise and the toad. I remember encountering one one night in France on the way to the sanitary block in the middle of the night - I think the only time I've seen a toad rather than a frog. Love the black birds in the top photo.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
