Canada Geese Babies

We've been waiting SOOOOO long, all winter in fact for the first goslings. They're here and they're cute. A short video is at http://www.new-jersey-birds.com/Goslings.mov.

Common Loon

Yesterday, Amazon delivered a new bird book to us: Birds of New Jersey. Looking through the waterfowl pages, we decided that we hoped to see a loon someday.

This morning, an odd looking, large duck landed on the lake. Chris got the binoculars and what do you know, it was a loon. How lucky is that? Okay, it's a common loon, and our daughter Karen makes fun of us because we think the common merganser and common goldeneye are rare birds. Well, we've never seen a loon before, common or not, so we took a few photos. This is the best, but it's a grey bird on a grey lake and a grey day.

I'm really enjoying this site. Great pics! Who knew there were so many cool birds in Jersey. Not me!

I like the name loon. It has a nice necklace too.

I have heard a lovely bird call coming from the marsh behind our house a few years - and just tonight by listening to online recordings identified it as a common loon. I've never seen it - and never knew they lived in NJ.
