Savannah Sparrow at Bombay Hook NWR.

I met Graeme early, and we drove to Bombay Hook to see if we could get lucky. There have been Ibises seen, and it’s well into migration, so anything was possible.

It was not to be. There were certainly plenty of birds in good light, but nothing out of the ordinary save a very nice Savannah Sparrow.

We spent some time with the Egrets and Terns, and found some Sandpipers willing to come quite close. Not a great day, but good enough.

This Great Blue Heron shows how the light was nearly perfect.
