Beautiful white head there...this area would have not qualified for category "quiet" in the last few days!!! Looks like a good bird spotting/snapping spot.

Hi Helen - I've been hoping to get by there all summer, after seeing so many of peargrin's shots mapped there, and I sure discovered why she seems to travel there so often. It's an absolutely amazing birding spot, even with Atlantic City across the bay. American Bitterns running across the road chasing a frog, look up and there's an eagle, continue along the track and another bittern flies across, further along and all kinds of birds we rarely see in Mass. are sticking their heads out of the grass at the edges of the marsh.... the list goes on, all in amazing afternoon light. I sure hope it'll be open by the one weekend in November that I'll be staying in Philly, since November is peak migration season I hear.

Hope that this area hasn't sustained too much damage and will recover quickly so the birds can be back for the migration season. Look forward to seein more from you.

Thanks M! I doubt there's been too much damage in the wildlife sanctuary itself - salt marshes doing what they are supposed to do. But the beach front area of Atlantic City itself did get moderate damage, though it seems not at all as bad as further north. I suppose I'll find out next weekend when I'll try to get to the area.
