Seaside Sparrow at Bombay Hook NWR.

I was ready for another trip, so I headed to Bombay Hook this morning in hopes of more shorebirds. I did find a few, but they’re not here in numbers yet.

I found a few birds yesterday I’m including here.

I managed to get a much better image of the Seaside Sparrow, and I found few reflections and some flowers.

All in all, a decent expedition.

Fox 117

This young Fox acted very tame.

I was lucky to have such a nice background for this Common Yellowthroat.

This Double Crested Cormorant was just chillin’.

It was a nice morning for reflections such as this Great Egret shot.
