I have visited this park and taken advantage of it's beauty and wildlife to photograph there. A huge collection of migrating birds can be seen at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. The park is located in Oceanville, New Jersey.....which is just south of Smithville in Atlantic County.

On one trip to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge I encountered the largest wild turtle I have ever seen, in fact I stayed a distance away will photographing this giant snapping turtle. It was the size of a dog! It came out of nowhere and I was just shocked to see such a large snapping turtle walking about.....watch those fingers and toes around this guy!
