Sea creatures wash up on a beach?
Memorial
Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the best few
days to be at the beach if you were near the ocean. Stubborn southerly winds gusting
up to 30 knots were blowing sand in your face and creating strong chop on the wa...

Yellowlegs Take a Pause from Migration
Even
though air temperatures of late don’t always make one feel like spring is here,
many of the cast of characters that make up a typical spring season around New
York Harbor are showing up. Ospreys, Piping Plovers, Oystercatchers, and
Striped Bass are all...

windy day around New York Harbor and another day of seeing migrating Snow Geese
stopping over at Sandy Hook to feed. This time it was a smaller flock of about

located in ...

Snow Geese at Sandy Hook
The
other day was a day of seeing the spring migration of Snow Geese across New
York Harbor. A small flock of about 20 geese made a quick stopover at the historic
Fort Hancock section of Sandy Hook in New Jersey to rest and feed. This doesn’t
take place oft...

Moon Snails Swept Up on the Shore
The
Sunday before Memorial Day weekend. It was a beautifully warm, humid, partly
cloudy day. Feeling very much like summer.  I
was taking a serene mid-day beach walk along the sandy shores of the Sandy Hook
peninsula, near the entrance to New York Harbor. I...

Fish Hawks Make a Home in NY Harbor
Come
April, all life begins to stir, speed, shuffle, and move. It’s a time of
resurrections and returns.   There is an
urgent need for many wild animals to breed and raise a family.  For
Fish Hawks or Ospreys this is certainly true. The hawks have just rece...

Piping Plovers Arrive to New York Harbor
Good
news! The little pale shorebird with orange legs has returned to New York Harbor.
Last weekend I spotted about a half-a-dozen Piping Plovers near the tip of the
Sandy Hook peninsula in New Jersey. Other people have reported seeing several along
the san...

The first Flowers of Spring around NY Harbor
Today I smiled when I saw the first flower of spring in
bloom. You would have been excused if you failed to notice it. It wasn’t much,

to stir after many weeks of frigid weat...
