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

Juvenile European Starling 8/8/13

Ocean Gate, NJ

I was especially pleased with these photos because you can really see the adult coloration coming in under the wings.
