My local birding expert thinks this is probably a laughing gull that I photographed at the Cape May Migratory Bird Refuge.
I learned a lot about birds at the museum near the Cape May lighthouse. Can anyone guess what this is for? OK, I’ll tell you: it’s for housing purple martins. Which apartment would you take if you were a purple martin? To me, a purple martin looks like someone dunked a bird in a oil slick.
This big stuffed thing in the museum was the closest I got to photographing an osprey.
