The Novice Bird

Welcome to the Novice Bird. I live in the great state of New Jersey in the United States. To be more exact I live in Ocean County near the bay. The birds and photos featured here will be only birds I have seen. If I feature a photo that I did not take I will do my best to credit the source. I am an amateur birder and I use the pictures to help me ID so I wouldn't even call my self an amateur photograher. I just look forward to watching my sightings list grow.

I welcome questions or corrections on any birds I id, just please be kind, I am here to learn and share.
Thanks, The Novice Bird

These were exciting to find because they aren’t really that common and they are kind of early to the area for the year. And we saw 3!
