One Incredibly Lucky Birder

From the New Jersey coast comes this incredible story of a lone birder who became trapped, upside-down and wedged between two 15-foot granite boulders, inside the jetty (!!) at Barnegat Lighthouse State Park.

Jetties can be dangerous places for birders to venture onto, especially when birding alone. In this instance, the birder involved was fortunate that he lived to tell the tale. Solo ventures such as this sometimes have an unhappy ending.

I ran across this story at Ask the Birds, the blog of Bill Bossman, who presents his perspective on the event here.
