Red Fox on Lake Nelson
Mike was up early this morning and noticed a fox running across the frozen lake. It stopped for a while to get its photo taken and then ran off into the wooded area by the dam. A couple weeks ago when the lake first froze, Chris thought she saw a fox go by in the same direction, but she didn't jump off the treadmill to get the binoculars to confirm it. (Mike said he believed her then, but now he really believers her!)

Mike got a birdcam for Christmas and is using an eye-fi wireless memory card to load pictures on the computer. While the photos are not as good as the DSLR, it beats going outside in cold and has a longer attention span. Click on the bottom photo to see a slideshow of common winter backyard feeder birds: finches, a cardinal, a chickadee, a goldfinch, a tufted titmouse, a nuthatch, a blue jay, and more.

More Photos of Winter Birds in NJ
The Carolina Wren and the White-throated Sparrow are common birds in New Jersey in the winter but harder to photograph because they rarely come to bird feeders and spend most of their time in the underbrush.
