Hezu, Euroasian Jay in flight is very nice :)

I was surprised when I found this place in Jersey City. It's kind of wetlands, salty wetlands. I wasn't prepared for BIF but two shots are worth to show.

10-A rare flock of wood storks, not native to the region but displaced by a past hurricane and they decided to stay. This was as close as they would get, or I could get to them as they rarely strayed from the main channel in the brackish marsh.

A wonderful thread with so many excellent photos.
@SnowFella: excellent shot, spot on focusr.Looks eally good, esp. enlarged on Flickr.


It's that time of the year again, birds leave the north to spend the winter in warmer regions. It's fascinating to watch when a few hundred birds first collect on one spot, before they built a long stretched formation for a long flight towards the south:







All photos taken with A55 and Minolta 1.7/50mm, that was the longest lens available when I saw the birds. Esp. for the first pic somthing in the 135mm to 200mm range would have been a better choice.
