The Loon Show

Second in number only to the gulls Sunday were the loons, both red-throated and common. I counted between forty and fifty birds, the uncertainty coming from diving and resurfacing birds. Unfortunately, most were too far for anything other than spec-bird images. But I did manage a few serviceable shots of this common loon.

I met several birders out that day that mentioned they had never seen as many loons at Barnegat. It was certainly the most I'd ever seen there on one day. Very cool.
