Backyard Winter Nature in New Jersey: Winter Birds.

Yet another LBJ (Little Brown Jobber) as described by Thom Hogan for an image of a small brown bird. My only comment is that it is so cold out that it just wants to sit in the sun to warm up giving me long enough time to get an image in focus.

My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
