We went over to Breezy Point, and this time traffic was easy breezy. We parked and then started walking. And walking. In the sand.
Then, we walked for a while more.
I think on the way we saw a few things, a killdeer flew over, a few catbirds, whatever.
Then we kept walking, and walking some more.
As Paul was explaining how hard it was to spot the piping plovers, Jack spotted this one!
Then we walked down the beach towards the colonies, passing several gulls of various type. The terns were fishing and a fishing boat was following them looking for fish, that was really cool to see. Paul warned us that at the colony if we got close to a nest (which is hard not to do, some are right by the path) the terns would warn us off, and we should just be calm. As he was explaining this, we were watching someone who was not at all calm. He was in fact spinning around and waving a beach towel over his head, with terns warning him away from all sides. He looked like he had no idea what was going on, and he finally came towards us, looking like he had just had a harrowing experience. Hahahaha, it was awesome!
