Bear Isalnd is a part of Hammocks Beach State Park. The park service runs a ferry out to the island, where you can go camping and bird watching. (Just don't count on the ferry boat pilots to be able to tell you what birds you're seeing.)
Juvenile Herring Gull
Virginia Dwarfdandelion and Reindeer Lichen
Japanese Black Pine
This little sanderling had only one leg. It seemed to be doing just fine though.
