First trip to the beach in the new year. It was a little chilly, only 37 degrees, but it was a beautiful sunny day with a clear blue sky. Not a lot of pictures, I forgot to bring my camera so I only had my phone with me.

There were some horse's asses at the beach. :lol:
Image

I don't think these were NY pigeons, they looked cold.
Image

Don't see a lot of egrets on the pier, it's usually gulls and pigeons. I was about 5 feet away from this one and it just stood there. Even when I moved closer it just took a step away, made no attempt to fly away from me.
Image

Every time I go walking on the beach I look for unusual shells. Whenever I see one like this, it's usually broken so I just keep walking. This was the biggest one I've seen so I grabbed it and brought it home. Rinsed all the sand off of it, now I just have to find something to do with it. It's almost 7 inches long.

Raccoons are such cute little critters. The camera was on full zoom, I didn't want to get too close and have it feel threatened, I hear they can be pretty nasty.

Now that I'm becoming a nature freak with all these bird pictures, I should probably get a better camera.

I think I have too much free time on my hands. :lol:

I've never seen a sea gull resting like this, they're always just standing around ...

... or coming in for a landing ...
Image

... or trying to look all bada$$.
Image

I wonder what it found?

I'm from NY, I've seen a lot of pigeons. I've never seen one this color.

It was colder than I thought it would be at the beach so I left and went to a park a couple of miles away.

There are always a lot of birds at this park, mostly ducks and cormorants. This is the first time I ever saw a pelican there.
Image

Nap time
Image

There were about 30 of these, they hopped out of the lake and ran at me. I felt like I was under attack by water fowl. Then they realized I wasn't going to feed them and they waddled away. :lol:
Image

I don't know what it is, but it was very cooperative.

There are always Muscovy ducks around but the ones I've seen have predominately white feathers with some black. Not today.

This one looks like a Muscovy might have been doing the wild thing with another species of duck. :o

This egret tricked me, I zoomed in and had it in focus then it decided to fly away.
Image

Funny looking duck, it's head looks too big for it's body.
Image

Image

Image

This little bird was hopping all over the dune and it was hard to get a good picture.
Image

When I was at the beach I thought it had red feathers on its head, now I'm not sure. It almost looks like a head wound.
