Piping Plover Pics

Got some cool news this morning from The Cornell Lab of Ornithology - two of my photographs of Piping Plovers were chosen to be used on their site, All About Birds. If you check out the "similar species" photographs in the bottom-right corner of the page, the first two were taken by yours truly! They also were kind enough to link to my Flickr page (which is on the right-hand side of this page as well).

The site is a great resource for birders, offering not only the usual range map and identification information, but also song recordings, extensive life history traits, cool facts, and even video recordings of the species! Check it out at the above link.

The last few weeks have kept me more than a little busy with work and school. I have an exhaustive literature review due in one week, and then a grade-deciding final the week after that. The day after the final, our World Series of Birding team, The Scarlet Knight Herons (check out our blog @ http://knightherons.blogspot.com ), will be participating in the big event. It should be an interesting few weeks to say the least! Starting in mid-May, though, I plan to update NJ Outdoors much more regularly. Weekly species highlights are in the works, as are interviews with conservationists throughout the state. Stay tuned!
