It’s still a little slow around here, so I went back to Bombay Hook this morning. I’ve never seen so many Sandpipers in one place. There were many thousands feeding in the first pool. Apparently they stay until the tide comes in.
There wasn’t as much variety as usual, and many of the birds were at the distant side of the pools, but enough cooperated to get a few decent images. The Night Herons were much more visible than usual.
I found this Beaver at Lake Artemesia yesterday.
Many Goldfinches were feeding near the marsh.
Eagles are almost always in this single tree at Bombay Hook.
There were hundreds of Egrets, but most were too distant for good images.
I just barely caught this Semi-palmated Plover at it flew by.
Forster’s Terns are still present in large numbers.
I spooked this Green Heron near Finis Pool.
This Great Blue Heron was photobombed by a flock of Least Sandpipers.
This Blue Grosbeak was singing loudly as I entered the refuge.
Black Crowned Night Herons nest at Bombay Hook, and this juvenile is learning how to feed himself.
