Oh Noes!!1! Season One.

Oh noes!!1! Tufters Jr. fell over and now one of his eyes is full of sand. What will he do? Will he ever see the beach or his family again?

Stay tuned for the season finale of “Oh Noes!!1!” Season One. You won’t want to miss the thrilling conclusion.

Be sure to sign up and become an email follower so you don’t miss the finale. You don’t have to worry that I’ll fill up your inbox with hundreds of ridiculous, often annoying, pictures and stories about animals on the beach: you can just accept that that’s what is going to happen and move on.

Worried about fake news? Have no fear. Once famously dubbed “The TMZ of nature blogs” which “brings the worst parts of the Internet to marine ornithology,” Readings From The Northside has been doing fake news since before it was even a thing. Fake wildlife news. When in doubt, you can just assume what you read and see here was totally made up most of the time.

And don’t worry about me tracking you and then manipulating you based on your tastes, preferences, and your friends. I don’t do that. I manipulate you based on my tastes, preferences, and friends. That’s more fun and way easier.

Coming up, on the season finale of “Oh Noes!!!1!”…. (caution, full of spoilers)

Pooof. Oh. Tufters Jr. blinked and the sand just kind of fell out. No biggie. Piping Plover babies have to find their own food as soon as they are born… even before they can really walk. So they fall over and face plant in the sand. A lot.


And don’t forget to sign up any youngsters you love, and even some that you don’t, for the big, upcoming Beach, Birds, and Biology Wildlife Adventure. It is a fun program run by New Jersey’s greatest experts on our original Island natives: the Beach Nesting Birds.

The one at Barnegat Light is definitely the best one because the spirit of Tufters, the Lord of the Lighthouse, watches over the thing. But the other ones are probably OK too if you are closer to them.

It’s a great program and these kids will learn more about the beach in this one afternoon than most of us learn in a lifetime. Sign up soon because space is limited and these things fill up. Highly recommended.
