Although it was a gray, dreary autumn day yesterday, I decided to take a walk with my camera through Colonial Park. It didn’t matter that the sky was overcast; or that my shoes and socks became soaked and moisture seeped up the bottom of my pant legs. It was a beautiful walk. The birds were everywhere. I was able to identify robins, sparrows, chickadees, warblers, starlings, and bluejays, as well as a kingfisher, a red-bellied woodpecker, and a nuthatch. The leaves on the trees ranged from brilliant color to a few straggly brown leaves clinging to a branch. Despite the dreary weather, it was so enjoyable to see the look of fall in New Jersey.
