Good morning everyone!
I'm sure I am not the only one who has experienced the sighting of a bird or water fowl
where you "think" that bird or water fowl may be new to you.
A bird that is somewhat familiar but it may not be acting the way you would expect.
This sighting goes back to April 8th and at first sight I thought it was a common seagull.
It behaved differently than the seagulls I am use to seeing,
it seemed much smaller than a seagull, and it was behaving like a diving duck.
I took many pictures, hoping that when I read my book I would find that it was "new to me".
I think, I hope...I hope I have identified it correctly.
A Bonaparte's Gull
According to my books it is a common small gull but I have never seen one in this part of New Jersey.
Perhaps because also,
according to my book, their territory only extends as far north as Cape May in New Jersey.
And they are only there during the winter.
So maybe, this was a rare sighting, as they are generally seen south of my area of New Jersey.
stopping at this spot in Belmar for a picture.
If you didn't notice on your own, look at the hubs expression as he is being "eaten by a shark"!
He is so fun to be with, I had no idea he did that until I loaded the pictures on my computer.
