Snowy Egret in Flight. Nummy island near Stone Harbor, New Jersey. These birds are smaller than Great Egrets and have bright yellow feet.
I think this is a Least Tern. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong

Taylor Sound near Cape May, New Jersey. These birds have amazing color in their eyes. They sort of run on the surface of the water for a bit to reach take off speed.
Osprey landing on an old pier piling. Near Cape May. These birds are now very common in this area. In the early 1970’s their population had been severely decreased by the widespread use of the pesticide DDT. These made their eggs very brittle. It was banned in 1972. That, coupled with increased numbers of man-made nesting sites has increased their numbers significantly since then.
