ASMR Nature Journey at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Tinicum, Pennsylvania (Early Spring)

I started visiting the John Heinz NWR back around 2005 when I got into photography (namely macro photography) for the first time in my life during my early 30’s. I used to take photos for fun as a teen in the 80’s, but it was never serious.

The John Heinz NWR is not just a great place for a walk, but also provides some great photographic opportunities, especially of wildlife, and namely birds. After all, the United States is not home to exotic wildlife species that you might find in Africa or the Galapagos islands, for instance. And here in the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., the only “exotic” wildlife, aside from squirrels and deer, would be the various bird species such as hawks and eagles, shorebirds, and all kinds of smaller birds such as cardinals, warblers and the like.

If you’ve never been to the John Heinz NWR, I can’t recommend it highly enough, whether you’re into photography or not. It’s a great place to walk around, a natural gem that’s tucked away in an urban environment.

And of course, if you live in some part of the world where you’ll never get to visit this place, then hopefully you can enjoy it virtually via this video of mine. If you do, make sure to put on your headphones for the best listening experience, as it was recorded with in-ear binaural microphones, so it’ll sound like you’re actually there!
