While things have slowed down a little bit at Local Exploration, I still have a lot of photos to share. Earlier this year, my wife and I decided to take a drive to Connecticut to check out a new place. That place was Hammonasset Beach State Park.
It was a rainy day in New York, but the weather looked a little more favorable east of us, so we took a chance. It was pretty cloudy when we got there, so our first time visit would prove to be tough to get good pictures.
I was blown away by the amount of wildlife that we spotted. I added five new birds to my life list – a glossy ibis, a little blue heron, a willet, a dunlin, and a snowy egret!
