For mother's day, my mom and I went out to the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, which is part of the Gateway National Recreation Area in Queens. Even though we only walked the flat two mile loop, it took us two hours because we stopped to take so many photos. There were tons of birds. I don't know anything about birds, but, according to what I read, there have been 330 different bird species spotted there in the last 25 years. Here are a few of my favorites.
