Bad Bird Photo of the Week

This past Sunday I led a field trip for NJAS to Barnegat Light State Park, my first time as a trip leader. It was a photography field trip with me as the supposed expert.

You wouldn't know it from this image, huh?

A nice shot of the wrong end of a ruddy turnstone. But what really makes the image is the out of focus purple sandpiper in the lower right corner.


Overall the trip was a good one, the weather, while overcast, was not windy. And any winter's day that isn't windy at Barnegat is a good one. Photography wise we had nice looks at harlequin ducks, herring gulls, and the two species shown here. The turnstones were quite cooperative, often walking right up to us.
