- “Jo Durt,” female Peregrine Falcon, wild.
I've just returned home from a few days on the New Jersey shore, where I was working with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology on some videos about photography of shorebirds. I got to hang out with my close friend Jim Verhagen who writes the blog Readings from the Northside, which some of you may follow.
Jim is many things, from a coding whiz to a photographer to a conservationist. He has developed an app called NestStory being used by many field researchers, that has revolutionized data collection for nesting shorebirds and now many other kinds of birds. Jim works particularly closely with the scientists who study and conserve the avian wildlife of the NJ coast, which sometimes seem to hang by barely a thread, but for their efforts. In particular, piping plovers, peregrines, ospreys, and American oystercatchers. He helped me and the Lab film crew a lot this week, with finding birds and learning the dynamics of beach nesting season. And he and I got to spend some time together after filming wrapped. Like me, Jim loves to get to know birds as individuals, and document the triumphs and tragedies of their lives. He brought me along to do a check on Jo Durt, a peregrine falcon female he's known for years, since she was a fledgling. Here Jo is returning to her aerie off a causeway. She has three young this year, and on the day we visited, it was clear they were just about to fledge. What a joy to sit and watch her and her family for a while. If you're interested, Jim's posts about her can be seen at tinyurl.com/yxm67mxw. Or just google Readings from the Northside. Prepare to be amazed by his photos, stories, and ridiculous sense of humor. 🙂 He is doing critically important work instilling a sense of appreciation in New Jersey residents for their local wildlife.
Over the next few days I’ll share some more photos from my time in New Jersey.
This photo was shot with my Nikon D850 and 200-500mm f/5.6. Settings: 1/4000 second, ISO 1000, f/5.6.
