“Yeah! Tell the gang!”

Minutes Later…

“Whooo… Here they come from all over!” as Oscar and Felix excitedly head to the pole.Β  Line-Up! Line-Up!

Felix: “We’ll direct from up here!” Then, shouting to the incoming Starlings: “Be courteous and make room!”

 

“Get your spacing, mind your neighbor…”

Perspectives: The Lighthouse and the Osprey

Osprey Nest and Barnegat Lighthouse a few minutes before sunset last night, as seen from newly opened Berkeley Island Park on Barnegat Bay, New Jersey.

The Ospreys in this unusually tall nest are about a mile away (1.6km); while the lighthouse is about seven miles (12.5 km) further.
