Backyard Wintertime Nature in New Jersey.

I’m not sure of the ID of bird in the first two images. It looks like the dark-eyed junco’s, but it has a brown rather than grey and black feathers.

Three-Years Ago (14-January-2016) — Pacific Ocean

Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 10: Crossing the Pacific Ocean From Hawaii to Japan.

The Masked and Brown Boobies continue to follow the ship. I think they are using the thermals created by our motion as they search for fish. I managed to get an image of a Brown Booby just after it caught a Flying Fish.

Individual images in the slide show can be viewed here.
