Do you enjoy birdwatching in the Garden State? I'll be honest I never thought I would become a "Bird Watcher" but over the years I have become an avid watcher and we have some great species of birds to look for here in New Jersey. Whether you're in the mountains of northwest New Jersey or by the Atlantic Ocean at the Jersey Shore, there are many birds to enjoy. I love taking my camera out and looking for new birds I haven't seen before.

I keep a special folder in my photos just for "bird watching". Anytime I get a good "birding" photo I am happy with I add this photo to my bird-watching gallery. Makes it easier for me to find bird pics when I need them.

If the weather cooperates this weekend there are two very cool "bird watching" activities that you can sign up for right here in Ocean County. Just have some good hiking shoes and a warm jacket and you should be all set.
