THE HOT MONTH OF JULY FOUND ME AT MY FAVORITE LOCAL HOT SPOTS-PENNYPACK TRUST AND PEACE VALLEY. I SPENT A FEW DAYS IN CAPE MAY AND STONE HARBOR. I WALKED THE 2 MILE BEACH AT STONE HARBOR POINT AND WAS REWARDED WITH A VERY COOPERATIVE ADULT PIPING PLOVER AND ONE CHICK-MY FAVORITE AND MOST CHALLENGING SHOREBIRD. UNFORTUNATELY THEY WERE THE ONLY PIPING PLOVERS I SAW ON THIS BEACH IN 4 DAYS. THE CHICK CAME RIGHT UP TO THE END OF MY LENS WHILE BEING SCALDED BY ITS PARENT. THE BEST WAY TO VIEW THE IMAGES IS TO CLICK ON THE SLIDESHOW TAB IN THE UPPER RIGHT. COMMENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME-ENJOY
