Sandyhook Secrets

 AJ and I on the boardwalk. We originally went to Sandyhook, NJ to look for birds to photograph. There are supposed to be wonderful birds there. While I did see an osprey in the distance, and AJ found some red-winged blackbirds, the birds became secondary to other activites! And....
To our surprise we ended up photographing baby raccoons. We were driving around the hook and near a gutter on the road were these three babies (baby raccoons are called kits) in the beautiful late afternoon sunlight. I've never been this close to a raccoon before. They were tiny and they made a cool purring sound. So at the end of the day, I returned from Sandyhook with raccoon pictures and boardwalk pictures, and no birds!
