A head-on view of one of these distinct diving ducks. When traveling to New Jersey for the first time for a handful of birds I had never seen before, I was pretty worried about not getting good enough views let alone photos. Thankfully, the jetty at Barnegat Lighthouse exceeded everything I had hoped for and it’s a place I’d be so excited to return to. The people that live close by have it made. 🌥
Harlequin Duck (Histrionicus histrionicus)
South America day 80: another of the photos that didn't make the cut for the calendar, although I really love this photo. This Brown Violetear (Colibri delphinae) is super sassy! 8.5x11in calendars for $20! 2 for $35 and 3 for $45! DM me for deets (full name and address) if you want one and haven't bought one yet. They make excellent Christmas gifts because who doesn't need a calendar?
